Cigars International has just opened a Super Store in the suburbs of Dallas-Fort Worth. This makes Cigars International’s fourth retail store and the first outside of Pennsylvania. The store was built in just six months and is located in a mixed-use development called Grandscape in The Colony.
Craig Reynolds, president of Cigars International said, “Given that the handmade cigar category was built on the kinds of personal interactions that can only be had in-store, our new location gives cigar lovers a unique venue for experiencing the camaraderie of fellow smokers. Our stores are meant to complement the traditional cigar shop experience and enhance the cigar lover’s appreciation for handmade cigars.”
The Cigars International Super Store at the Colony is over 7,000 square feet with an outdoor smoking lounge. The humidor is 2,500 square foot, glass-enclosed. There is also a bar, a Club Macanudo lounge, and 32-foot-high ceilings.
The design of the Super Store looks like a curing barn. The rectangular shape and shades on the sides are meant to represent the look the Northeast’s iconic tobacco sheds, and the truss work is a design element that was carried over from two of Cigars International’s other stores.
The grand opening was on Saturday, September 22. Cigars International estimates that more than 1,000 cigar enthusiasts visited the Dallas-area Super Store that day. The openening also included an exclusive limited edition Macanudo Inspirado cigar, available only at the Colony location. The cigars are presented in individual coffin boxes, selling for $17.99 for the Toro Grande, and $19.99 for the Double Corona.
