Name of Shop: Ted’s Tobacco
Date Visited: 09/21/09
Street Address: 111 South 66th Street
Phone Number: (402) 484-5571
Hours of Operation: Monday-Saturday 10am-9pm, Sunday 12pm-5pm
Location: Above Average
This shop is located pretty much right in the middle of town. There is usually plenty of parking. It gets an above average rating because it’s not in a stupid mall and and it is right on my way home.
There are only two or three different guys who work there, including the owner, Ted. They are all friendly and helpful.
A quick count showed about 60 different brands in stock. I have never had a cigar from Ted’s that was in bad condition. There prices are comparable to the other two shops in Lincoln, there selection blows everyone else away.
They used to have plenty of chairs for smoking and TV watching, reading or whatever. Then the geniuses on the city council banned smoking in all workplaces, including tobacco shops and bars. They still have a few chairs but you don’t see anyone hanging out very often. As a side note, their shop in Omaha still has a great lounge area.
Overall Opinion: Exceptional
I love Ted’s. I do not count the lack of a lounge against them, they fought the smoking ban as hard as anyone did. I will definitely go back, probably tomorrow.
