E-cigarette enthusiasts will now be able to get their fix in Windsor after a new store opened in the town.
Vape Smart, in Peascod Street, officially opened its doors to the public on Friday.
The company, trading under the name of Totally Wicked, already has three stores in Slough and one in Maidenhead.
E-cigarettes aim to provide a healthier alternative to smoking as smokers can inhale nicotine through a vapour and no tobacco is used.
According to figures released by Public Health England and the Royal College of Physicians, ‘vaping’ is at least 95 per cent less harmful than smoking.
Windsor MP Adam Afriyie was on hand to open the new store.
Beverley Jackson, 55, managing director of Vape Smart, said: “If you buy over the internet you can’t try all the devices and find out what suits you.
“This store gives people the chance to try before they buy and all our staff will be on hand to give their advice.”
