The electronic cigarette store at Green Lane and Mitchell Street closes after failing to receive a zoning variance.
The electronic cigarette store Vape Lounge that was located at the corner of Green Lane and Mitchell Street has closed after the business lost its zoning hearing earlier this week.

The property is zoned for residential; however, the unit was leased to the business owners as a commercial location.

The business owner was seeking a variance from the city to continue using the property has a business where electronic cigarettes were sold.

The owner left a goodbye message on the window of the property thanking the Roxborough customers for their business, and that people are more than welcome to visit their two other locations in either Upper Darby or a new location set to open on South 10th Street in Philadelphia.

This really does not surprise me. As a person passing by on my to & from work the place had very poor Signage No large Banners at all. I guarantee if the owner had done more in advertising its physical location they would have done very well. As a lot of electronic cigarettes shops are currently doing. *** Just putting this out there.... But has anyone seen the signs in front of Pats Place Deli on Manayunk avenue? They are big bright and professional for the atmosphere.
