If you are a cigar aficionado in the Pineywoods, this might just be the place for you. A new business is here in Historic Downtown Nacogdoches. The Nacogdoches Cigar Co. Tobacco Store is opening it's doors to the public for the first time today. All lovers of the leaf in our area will be able to immerse themselves in the interesting world of cigars.

The shop is located at 325 E.Main St. In Nacogdoches where the Rusty Axe used to be, next door to where Glass Castles...used to be. Lots of used to be on Main St. in the oldest town in Texas. I am hopeful for any new business coming to our area.

This is a first of it's kind shop for our area, though these types of shops are popular throughout the country. Once thought of as a smelly past time for grumpy old men, cigar smoking has become more of an image of success.

Nacogdoches Cigar Co will have a retail smoking lounge that is open to the public. It's full of what they are calling 'Mantiques'. They have a large selection of cigars and pipe tobacco. If you got kicked out of your house because someone didn't like the smell, now you have somewhere to go.

The Nacogdoches Cigar Co. is open Monday - Saturday from 10:30am to 7pm. Look for more from this business soon, as this is just a soft opening. I am sure if things go well a grand opening will be coming in the near future for this new downtown Nacogdoches business.
