Hav-A-Tampa will be one of the first SCHIP victims.
After making cigars since 1902, they are done.
About 500 workers will be filing for unemployment.

Crying or Very sad

If I may ask, where did you hear this?

I thought they were owned by Altadis? Did they drop the line of cigars, or what happened?

Yes, the plant, which is owned by Altadis, is closing.

Moving production to Puerto Rico. I never had one of their cigars.

Maybe moving to a Latin American country will improve the quality of the cigar???
We used to smoke these when I was in my late teens-early 20's, they had one with a solid wood (maple I think) tip, instead of the plastic many of their competitors used. They were a bit better than Swisher Sweets as I recall.

My wife's grandparents were cigar rollers that came from Sicily in the early 1900's to work for them. They went back to Sicily and came back to the states a second time to settle in NY.

Moving to a U.S. territory, if you please. Puerto Ricans are American citizens, serve in the US military, etc.
