A DEAL has been struck which should take a Blackburn vaping firm's new e-cigarettes into convenience stores up and down the land.

Nisa and Costcutter have signed on the dotted line with Shadsworth's Vape Dinner Lady to roll out their new Disposable Pod model.

The Wilkinson Way firm has been working with Nisa since November last year and their association has sparked the latest agreement.

Bosses say the product is the first e-cigarette to be filled with their award-winning e-liquids range and it will come in three flavours, lemon tart, smooth tobacco and blue menthol.

John Taylor, Vape Dinner Lady's (VDL) chief marketing officer, said: "We've had a hugely successful relationship with NISA and Costcutter to this point and this announcement comes on the back of recognition of our premium quality credentials.

"We’re delighted to partner with such market-leading convenience brands and are certain that, as first national stockists of our unique Disposable Pod, they will enjoy first mover advantage."

Nisa, now owned by the Co-Op, has 2,500 stores nationwide and Costcutter has around 1,700 locations.

The deal continues an upwards momentum for VDL, part of the GM Group, which since it was first established in 2016 has gone on to secure distribution deals in 95 countries.

Multi-million pound investments have been made in manufacturing facilities and the company now employs more than 150 people, with 70 additional roles recruited for over the past 12 months alone.
