Bountiful e-cigarette shops have business licenses revoked for 2014

The majority of the Bountiful e-cigarette shops being closed are a result of being too close in proximity to neighborhoods, Frazier said.But before those speciality e-cigarette retail stores opened in 2013, shop owners confirmed their location with the city and were assured they were not considered as a tobacco retailer, he said."They have now reversed their original decision, but unfortunately only after each of these shops have invested tens of thousands of dollars in facility improvements, tens of thousands of dollars in inventory and committed to 2 to 5 year leases on their location they will be unable to get out of," Frazier said.The decision by the city will also result in about 15 people losing their jobs, and a loss in city and state sales tax revenues, Frazier said.
