Trends NZ: Vape ‘Starter Kit’ Sales Up by 30% Due to Covid-19 Lockdown

Co-owner of Alt New Zealand and Vapo, Ben Pryor, says that since the countrys Covid-19 lockdown has gone into effect, its R18 online sales for vape starter kits and entry-level devices have risen by 30%.

While the business has taken a significant hit with its 11 Vapo stores closed nationwide, sales of Alt and Vapo Haiz starter kits, including pens, pods and e-liquids, have gone up via online stores or supermarkets, service stations, and convenience retailers.

Weve really noticed a big increase in our Alt and Vapo Haiz starter kit sales. Our call centre is reporting that many smokers are using this time to quit tobacco so are seeking advice and turning to considerably safer and cost-effective vape products more than ever,said co-owner Ben Pryor.

There are a few things at play here. People are quitting cigarettes because of their sheer cost and the increasing pressure many household budgets are now under. At the same time, the threat of Covid-19 has made many smokers more cognisant of their respiratory health and smokings second-hand effects on others in their bubble,he added.

The business owner added that with the Health Select Committee due to report back to Parliament by the 2nd of June on the Smokefree Environments and Regulated Products (Vaping) Amendment Bill, MPs need to consider the important role that vaping plays in reducing smoking rates. And this has never been more of an important factor as it is now during the current lockdown period.

Vapesourcing Opinion:

Without doubt, Covid-19 is providing a unique opportunity to quit smoking, with many now turning to vaping for their nicotine fix.This is a timely reminder that any new vaping regulations must continue to encourage and enable smokers to make that switch.
