Cigars International (CI) has announced the opening of its latest superstore in Fort Worth, Texas. The new store is CI’s second superstore in Texas and the company’s fifth retail location in the U.S.
“At Cigars International, our focus is not on selling cigars or accessories, but on selling an experience. We offer a welcoming, educational environment, so that everyone of legal smoking age can enjoy the pleasure of a handmade cigar and the camaraderie of fellow smokers. We look forward to sharing our hospitality and our spectacular new store with the cigar lovers of Fort Worth and North Texas,” comments Mat Cook, director of retail operations for Cigars International.
The 8,000 square-foot store is being hyped as the ultimate cigar lover’s destination with over 1,200 different cigars in its humidor. Designed to look like a Northeast tobacco barn complete with a large-scale timber truss, Cigars International Fort Worth is outfitted with an expansive, full service bar and lounge, a private event space that can host up to 30 people and more than 3,000 square feet of patio space with three outdoor fire pits that will be popular on those chilly Texas evenings. Inside, customers can expect comfortable lounge seating, Wi-Fi, and USB ports available throughout the store to enhance the experience of all guests.
The superstore’s staff of 43 employees have all been trained on environmental cleaning, disinfection and respiratory etiquette and protocols to comply with federal, state and local regulations brought on by COVID-19. Due to the pandemic, the retail store capacity is limited to just 50 percent. The in-store bar will open and a date will be set for the grand opening event. Cigars International plans to hold monthly in-store events that will include appearances by local luminaries, cigar makers and spirits brand ambassadors for educational seminars, pairing events and more.
Cigars International Forth Worth is located at 12853 Cabela Drive in Fort Worth, near Cabela’s. It’s business hours will be Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 9 a.m.-midnight, and Sunday, 9 a.m.-10 p.m.
