Name of Shop: Ye Olde Pipe Shoppe
Date Visited: 09/28/09
Street Address: 581 Old Hickory Blvd # G ,
Phone Number: (731) 668-8999
Hours of Operation: Mon-Sat 10:30a-6pm
The shop is in the Hamilton Hills shopping center, a run down center, but it’s been there for 25 years. At least it’s located in the center of town.
The staff consists of about 1 at a time gruff old guys. Not that thats a bad thing…knowledge was good but brief, “those are good”, “we sell a lot of these,”.
Only real shop in town, so it’s hard to compare. Not bad, plenty of Arturo Fuente and I saw some opus X on display. Supply was well humidified.
The Prices are really quite good. The Opus X was one of the medium sizes and it was on sale for only around $13. A good selection of seconds as well as some great mixed-filler like the Pepin “Benchmade”.
Lounge: Below Average
This is where they are really hurting. One love seat and a puffy chair. One small TV. Plenty of crabby old guys talking conservitive politics, and that’s always fun. Maybe a little more religious talk than in your average cigar shop.
They have a lot of display cases and nothing much to display, they could rearrange some things in there to make better use of the small space.
Overall Opinion: Average
My rating of them is saved by the fact that they are the only real store in town, and the small town atmosphere. If there was a real lounge in town, they would probably charge a lot more for the same cigars. I’ll be back. I have no choice!
