Horsham is set to welcome a major vape chain to the town.

Vape Store will be opening in West Street towards the end of July.

The company, which sells electronic cigarettes, e liquids and vaping accessories, will be taking over the unit previous occupied by Boots Opticians, next to Rush Hair.

Vape Store is the retail division of the Vapouriz Group, the second largest independently owned Vape brand in the UK.

Brett Horth, chief executive of Vapouriz, said: “Horsham is an exciting town with much growth in residential homes and regeneration of retail and office space and the lack of vaping shops has put Horsham firmly on our radar as the next place to open.”

The Horsham store will be company’s fifth opened in the south east.

It launched its first in Guildford in 2014 and has since opened shops in Chichester, Brighton and Kingston-upon-Thames.

Mr Horth said: “There are smaller ones, generally owned by hobbyists, but this is the first major Vape Store retail chain to open in the Horsham area.

“We are very excited. We think it will be as successful as our first store in Guildford.”

The shop is set to open on July 25 creating three new jobs.
