Knowing the facts would be a good start to a proper story. I was very disappointed to see this establishment portrayed as breaking the law. The smoking ban is on businesses that serve alcohol, or prepare and serve food. This particular place does neither. Tobacco shops, are exempt from the smoking ban, as long as they do not serve food or alcohol. A disservice has been done to these local business people by attempting to portray them as flaunting the law. They are doing nothing of the sort. I would hope that this would be looked into, and a correction be issued. In these hard economic times, we need all the successful businesses we can get in Wilmington. Lets not contribute to putting another one out of business due ignorance, and the misreporting of the actual facts.
