Location: Above Average
The shop is located right on the main strip through Arlington. It has a prime corner location less than a block from the Metro.
Staff: Above Average
The staff is incredibly knowledgeable. Recently 2 new employees were brought in. One is a “certified tobacconist” from Cigar University. They know there stuff and are very easy to talk to or get help with your selection.
Stock: Above Average
Given the area they are in and the cost of retail, they are able to keep their pricing fairly low. They have all of the major brands, a good portion of the boutique brands and are working on adding the ones they do not carry. They also have a large selection of humidors, cutters and lighters.
The Lounge is nothing over the top, but very relaxed and comfortable. There are 6 leather club chairs as well as two flat panel TV’s. The shop also has a Espresso Machine for it’s customers.
Overall Opinion: Above Average
This is my daily shop. I might be biased as I’ve developed a good relationship with the owner, however even when I first started going I was treated very well. As with many shops once you develop that friendship they do a very good job to take care of you, selling items at very good discounts, putting stuff away that they know loyal customers want to ensure it remains in stock long enough for them to get them.
I will definitely continue to go there.
