People never cease to amaze me.

First customer of the day... "Do you have Black & Milds?"

My reply, "No ma'am, but the convenience store in the food court carries them."

She immediately had a look pure disappointment. I have had this question a handful of times but never received so much disappointment that we didn't carry them.

Ironically, one guy once replied "How can you call yourself a cigar store without Black & Milds?!" My co-worker replied, "Sir, that's exactly the reason why we CAN call ourselves a cigar store." It was pretty funny.

Anyways, Happy Thursday! I hope it's a good one for all of you!

I assume you're very well-stocked on grape White Owls, though, right?

They're ubiquitous, at least here in this section of the colonies. They aren't horrible, they just aren't cigars. Think Captain Black in a homogenized leaf tube.  tongue

I see why you may not carry them, but why not? Sure most pipe and cigar smokers don't think they are worth it but would u not like to make a sale idk maby it's just me.  But if u had them you could sell them then in return make the shop money.

In some quarters, the filler is emptied out and the "homogenized leaf tube" is used to hold and burn certain other leaves.

The filler can be non tobacco ingredients, like cardboard. That's no joke!!

Sadly a lot of people are like that, they all think they're walking into Burger King.
If ya don't carry what they want they think your clueless when it's obviously the other way around.
