At City Cigars, we are an online-only cigar shop currently operated by a fellow cigar smoker. We’ve been in operation since 2015, so we are relatively young, strong, and growing.
Cigars are for different occasions, be it celebration or just relaxation. I started the business to ensure the joys of a cigar continues. With many aspects to consider when purchasing cigars, the notion of cost and varieties is always an important one. The regular cigar smoker with an already established favourite cigar might sometimes think twice before buying his/her cigar, especially if the price keeps rising. This is the situation I found myself in, during the Christmas period of 2014, after having dwindled my stash to a bare minimum, lighting up in different bars around the City of London with friends.
This is the problem this business is attempting to solve: bringing down the cost of cigars. We regularly compare our prices against the lowest prices in the UK and we adjust them accordingly, to always be lower. Why, you ask? Because as a fellow cigar smoker, we do not want price to be a hindrance to your fun times. What allows us to lower the price is because I run other businesses, so starting the cigar business wasn't primarily about profits, but for like-minded cigar lovers like myself. We categorically promise never to be beaten on price, and to also provide a better shopping experience.
