NextGen Vape Shop, a new business dedicated to e-cigarettes and liquid nicotine vaporizers, has opened at 2417 Avenue U, the former location of Kings County Divers.
The store opened its doors within the last few days. It’s the first vape shop we know of that has opened in the area, and, as we previously reported, another one is headed to Sheepshead Bay Road.
Although both stores seem to be positioning their vapeware as their primary offering, they both also have signs that say “smoke shop,” which suggests tobacco, glassware and accessories.
The business is replacing Kings County Divers, which closed in February after 40 years serving the community.
Kings County Divers Corp. at 2417 Avenue U is closed for good after 40 years of serving the Sheepshead Bay diving community.
According to the business’ website, the store closed for good on February 28 following a clearance sale.
“Your continued patronage to our company has been truly appreciated, and we are so grateful for having the privilege of satisfying your needs as our loyal customer. We do understand that the closing of Kings County Divers may be an inconvenience,” owner Mia Interrante wrote in the statement.
No reason for the closure was given. A Kings County Divers Alumni Association was launched on Facebook to keep the business’ diving community intact.
Good luck to the owners on their future endeavors.
