    Just to add to this, they also stole our Prime testers, these are labelled Helix Kits with disposable tanks, they are marked with the flavour that is inside them.

    We have received calls from another Vape Store that they have already tried to sell these specific items to them.

    Holy crap! I am so sorry to hear this @Stroodlepuff that's heartbreaking!

    They got away with enough to start their own store! That's madness, sorry for the losses and will definitely be keeping an eye out

    We just did the calculation, excluding the TV and some older stock which was being sold under refurb on the system as we were trying to clear it we are sitting on R99 583.00 worth of stock taken.

    The total we are estimating with the refurb stock and the TV is around R120 000.00

    Agh so sorry to hear VK!!! On the positive side at least there was no one in the store at the time... I really hope these guys are caught and brought to justice!!!! I've recently started vaping and the staff at the Fourways store is always super friendly and helpful, it's so sad to hear something like this happen.

    @Stroodlepuff , Went past there on Friday to say hi to everyone. Sorry to hear VK. Will keep an eye out for the stock and guys. Hope they get nailed fast. If I was the other store I’d double security, scope out while trying to make a sale, guess who may be next.

    Just for interest sake, is the other store in Fourways area? Knowing where they tried to sell may assist. We don’t need details, just east west or general area or something like that, unless you guys are not allowed due to investigation and that it may tip them off.

    7a.m. is a strange time for a break-in! One could understand a break-in in the middle of the night, but in the morning when there are people about? Weird.

    We'd all better keep an eye on the Classifieds here - the stolen goods might just surface! I feel sorry for anyone who is genuinely trying to sell one of the listed items - he'll immeidately be under suspicion lol

    EDIT @XtaCy VapeZ The stolen goods might well surface in your FB Classifieds group.

    Sorry to hear about this @Stroodlepuff ,i understand it's so frustrating,it's not just the stock that was taken,its also the damage done,a day or 2 of no business due to setting up again,and probably other stuff,it's not easy,many of us have been through it,just be strong and make sure you catch those guys so they can regret they ever walked into a vape shop

    Most break ins happen at that time. Most people are out dropping kids off or going to work. And during that time usually security shifts changes. These fuggers are clever and might have been observing the routine for a while. Must have popped in the store before a few times as well to look at stock and plan around security.
