    B & M reopening at level/ stage 2.

    if tabacco is allowed at level 4 wont the sale of E Liquid fall under that category?

    plus with the category levels differing in each province isnt it likely that we could see a vape shop or 2 be open for online trading?

    Not currently classed as tobacco - no excise (sin tax) is paid currently.
    Things like IQOS/ Heets etc may make the cut.
    Doubt anything else will though.

    Hypothetically this might be allowed- in a cross district or cross provincial way, as levels may vary between district/ metro/ province.
    But that said - if the source is level 3 they can ship based on an online purchase. if the destination is level 5 they likely cannot do the last mile delivery as the goods are not deemed essential.

    You might be able to buy from supermarkets. But vapeshops will definitely remain closed.

    correct and all provinces are going into level/stage 4 as of 1 May and then from there different levels for different provinces but only until further notice or who knows how long before different levels happen.

    My current gut feeling is that it will remain a 5.

    Doesn't vape shops fall under small businesses?

    I placed an order with TVJB just before the lock down, hoping that I would get it just in time. They phoned me and said that they won't be able to ship in time due to their couriers not being about to make it from CPT to JHB in time before the lock down.

    The offered me a refund, which I should have taken with the state we are in now, or I could wait until the lock down is over. I decided to wait thinking it would only be 21 days, and my order would ship on on 16 April and I would be sorted.

    Little did I foresee the lock down would be extended and that it would be a phased approach. Now if online retailers can only start operating at level 3...who knows how long it will take to reach there. I'm now hoping for my delivery to hopefully take place in June? But at the rate we're going, who knows when.

    Luckily I still have enough juice and cotton to last me a while longer. But it's frustrating that vape shops can't operate online (just like Takealot and Loot), but come 1 May everyone will be heading in droves to stock up on cigarettes, in case we fall back to level 5 for some reason.

    It actually doesn't make sense that unhealthy cigarettes will be sold from 1 May, but healthy vaping not.

    The cigarette counters at the supermarkets will be crowded on 1 May!! Should I go there out of curiosity and to take a pic - or should I avoid the crowds?

    I wish I could find out how many smokers DO NOT go back to smoking, having been forced to stop smoking during lockdown.

    The thing is those who smoke will have to stock up because as soon as the infection rate is gonna go up after the release of smokes they gonna ban the cigarettes again
