First off, I want to genuinely thank all of our customers who have supported us during these rough times by understanding that COVID-19 has caused a few limitations and still sticking with us.  We understand that every one of you has managed to turn away from combustible tobacco in favour of a nicotine alternative and the last thing we want to see is that support be removed, especially in a time of need like now.
