TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) – Town of Tonawanda Police cited two businesses for selling liquid nicotine to minors following a Feb. 8 sting operation.

Police tested the sale of liquid nicotine products to an underage decoy at all four designated “Vape Shops” in the town.

The businesses cited for selling to minors were:

  • Chain Vapors; 894 Brighton Road in the Town of Tonawanda
  • Yeti Vape; 2327 Sheridan Drive in the Town of Tonawanda

Employees at both locations were issued appearance tickets for violating the New York State Public Health Law prohibiting the sale of tobacco or nicotine products to those under 18 years old.

Fines for such sales range from $300 to $1,000 for a first-time offense. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
