Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well, I have been so busy recently that I haven’t been able to update you all on a weekly basis so this is another sum up of the past couple of weeks!

I have been working alongside Courtney and Sarah in the shop and hopefully they are feeling more confident in the shop. We have had many of our favourite customers come in, including Tony who has been enjoying his Arturo Fuente cigars, we even had to order more in from our other shops. 

On the 1st we had the release of the new Por Larranaga 47, which is a regional release limited to 1,500 boxes. We had an incredible event with people purchasing tickets on the day to make sure they could get in! 

I served a lovely gentleman who was having issues with his humidor, he had ordered it off a company who doesn’t specialise in tobacco products or their accessories and couldn’t return it. I did give him some suggestions to try but he decided he wanted to buy a humidor from us as we are more than happy to advise him further. He decided on the Houston Walnut Humidor with a Glass Window. A great way to make your cigars the centrepiece of your house! He purchased around 10 cigars to fill it up too! As I haven’t heard from him, I assume he’s doing well with it. I also had some people who were on holiday and wanted a cigar on the beach, they had never smoked before so as always the Mitchellero Robusto was the decision, great for beginners and incredible value for money, it’s really a no brainer.

The Christmas raffle has been doing very well with over 100 tickets sold! Good luck to everyone involved. The raffle will be drawn on the 15th and the winner will be contacted immediately. 

I know it’s a bit early but the Christmas decorations are up in the shop! I was in charge for the first time and I went all out! I bought a brand new tree and lots of new decorations. With the help of Sarah and Lisa (who normally works in packing), we decorated the shop beautifully with new displays and is already a great talking point amongst customers.

I have still been writing articles for the C.Gars cigar library, I created one about spirits to enjoy around the bonfire as well as fascinating facts about Cohiba. They are probably the most popular brand in Cuba but there is always something that surprises me about them.

We have had new releases from De Olifant, Kristoff, Cavalier and Bossner which have been flying off the shelves!

The Norfolk shop is busier than ever so please be patient with us as some staff are still in their training phase. I can’t wait to see you all in store really soon!

So long for now
