Wow, 2020 will be written in the history books as probably one of the worst years since the dinosaurs roamed the earth.
BUT here at Innovated Vapors, things are getting bigger and better.
Sure we have brain eating microbes now but if we can get through covid-19 we will make our way through the zombie apocalypses.
There are many things changing, and one is; we will be saying goodbye to one of our employees. Dawn has been an amazing person to have working for us. She has been a massive help in organizing the shop, helping Jenn with getting the shop clean and running while Jenn loses her head in the PMTA edition of more FDA hocus pocus regulations.
Jonathan and Kat have also helped by losing their minds and helping Jenn focus on the PMTA's and now the TRLM website. Thank GOODNESS for great employees!!!
While most of the employees have been helping their Manager work on PMTA's, the others have been working hard at continuous service helping our community.
Innovated is dedicated to our community. We will continue to support our local law enforcement with needed items; we will continue to provide amazing service and we will be introducing new items into the shop that have been PMTA submitted.
With that being said, many things are going to be changing.
When you come in, you may notice, a lot of our product is out of stock, changing, or you may be waiting for something that is taking its "good ole time" getting here.
DON'T Panic, our employees are dedicated to helping you find an alternative to "hold you over" until we receive the products you're looking for or something comparable. Some items may not be returning, and some are being held up by customs.
Flavors and product will be changing, now that the PMTA deadline has passed.
After the PMTA, as of September 9th 2020, products that were not submitted to the FDA for further analysis had to be removed from stores and in-house e-liquids (open system e-liquid) and hardware have to be removed. This is a slow process for many of us, but hold tight, things will get back to as normal as they can, very soon.
Now, on to some pretty epic news, and where we think our karma is changing to a positive note.
We have a new employee that will be starting her training on Monday 09.28.20
(You may not see this post till a week or so after this date, as the website is in construction status) but this will give you incite :D
Welcome to Innovated Vapors - Amanda!!!
Brief (LOL) history....
Jenn has been doing vape shows for the last 8 years, has taught others about vaping as vaping grew more and more influential. Kat had done the same thing and has been in the vape industry for 13 years. Between us we have a lot of years.
The vaping community as very tight and TEXANS are tighter in the bond they share I have learned living here for the last 13 years. With PMTA's the Texas group has gotten bigger and the willing to help has been astounding. Many of the shops have gotten together over the years for advocacy and has since helped one another with PMTA's. (see, I can keep it brief :D )
Now forward to Amanda :D finding us :D
We honestly thought it was a joke. And reason being, it is hard to come by someone as experienced as Amanda is in the vape community and A GIRL!!! RAWR
One of our friends, who fought by our sides at the Trump rally last year on the PMTA and Vaping in Dallas; saw I was hiring her and wanted her! NO WAY Jamie (love you), but no.... after interviewing Amanda, we knew the potential we could acquire to make this team AMAZING and strong! SO..
Amanda was hired and has officially joined our team.
Please be patient with her. She may have the experience but we run things different than all of our friends/stores in the community.
Thank you Amanda for putting in and application and here is to MANY MORE YEARS!
Kat will be taking over the blogging and of course all the social media. We are getting bigger and better than ever AND we will continue to provide you with the same exceptional service as always.
