FLORIDA: Juno Beach Plaza Not Allowing Smokeshop to Open due to "drug paraphernalia" Claim
Alien Tiger Co. is a brand new concept smokeshop that sells vapes, vintage video games, hookahs and smoking accessories that include water pipes and papers intended for tobacco use ONLY.
We have been fighting for a Donald Ross and US1 location in Plaza La Mer in Juno Beach for the past 2 months, since the location would place us right where our customers need us to be. After much negotiation and sacrifices on our end, the great people at the realty office that represent the Landlord, as well as the Landlord, approved our business model and was about to send us our agreement to sign when their anchor tenant, Tire Kingdom, decided to deny our lease given their contract terms with the Plaza. Their denial comes with a claim that they will not allow "head shops" in the plaza that intend to sell "drug paraphernalia".
First of all, our products are NOT sold for drug use nor do we advocate the use of drugs and we need you guys, our friends and future patrons, to voice your opinions against this denial that is not only setting Juno Beach back but is also limiting your options for quality and affordable smokeshops in the area.
Secondly, the community of Northern Palm beach county has been in need of a new smokeshop experience since their options are currently limited and what Alien Tiger Co. hopes to achieve is providing them with an affordable, professional, and enjoyable experience while purchasing their variety of products. Our rendered store design is already in place and we would love to share it with anyone who asks for it to show how we intend to elevate the smokeshop experience for our landlords but most of all, for our patrons.
Help us change Tire Kingdoms' mind and for them to re-work their outdated contract with the plaza!
