Of course as taxes increase the cigars in that price bracket are going to move up to the next level and buyers will be looking for something even cheaper. That’s a problem that’s not only going to affect the cigar store owners but the manufacturers as well and the premium cigar makers are aware of the situation.

The manufacturers have been quick to reassure the retailers that they will work to reduce their production costs for they understand the harsh realities of  higher taxes and while that may not translate into cheaper prices at the checkout it will help retailers to keep the price increases down

So life as a tobacco store owner is definitely not a bed of roses. Sure they may be working in an industry that they love and it might even be an industry that looks quite attractive to you but the reality is that life is tough and it’s going to get a whole lot tougher.

Without your support many of them won’t survive so if you like the idea of being able to jump in your car and head down to your local cigar store to talk cigars and buy a box or two keep on supporting your local cigar store. If you don’t it won’t be long before the only way to buy cigars will be online and once that happens the personal service from your local cigar store, that many of us find so appealing, will be gone forever.

good article and as sad as it is the government will find a way to control the population if not by banning then by taxing to death. just the tip of the iceberg imo.less gov control and more freedom. not sure if it makes sense since im typing with my eyes half open. super tired right now but i thinkn you get the message
