Hi everyone! I hope all the Fathers out there enjoyed their special day! I spent mine at a theme park with my wife and son, a perfect day and luckily the rain held off! How did you spend yours? Let me know!

Monday was incredibly busy with online orders taking up much of my time, luckily I had Porscha with me to help out massively! We spent almost all day picking all of the online orders, to the point that when we finally sat down, we were exhausted! During our picking, Porscha served a lovely couple who had never been in before. The gentleman purchased a few Nub Maduros as well as the Zino Nicaraguan Robusto, which was suggested by Porscha. Afterwards the lady went back in the humidor to treat her husband to some Perdomos as a gift, she chose the 10th anniversary Robusto as well as a tin of puritos. He is certainly a lucky man!

Tuesday was my marketing day, I created an article for the C.Gars cigar library, I have been doing a lot of beginners recommendations about cigar accessories so I thought I would change it a little and create one about pipes for beginners. You can read it here. I also spent plenty of time taking pictures of the pipes for the article. I don’t tend to take many pictures of pipes so it took me quite a while (and plenty of attempts) to get them right, but they came out quite good in the end! I also took pictures of the cigars of the month ready for July! Billy, our humidor manager, has made quite an interesting choice this time, unfortunately I can’t tell you what they are, so you’ll have to wait until the 1st of July. Later on I started creating the shops newsletters for all of our shops around the UK, they have such unique settings, i’ll need to see them one day!

I got to enjoy two days off so I returned on Friday to more online orders being placed. The Euros samplers have been incredibly popular! And they are such a good idea, you pick a team who you want to support and if that team wins you get 300 loyalty points as well as some great smokes! I served a regular customer who always purchases pipe tobacco, usually it’s one tin a week, however this time he decided to have a cigar with his tobacco! I was shocked, he treated himself to an Alec Bradley Orchant Seleccion Orchie. Many of you may know that it is one of my favourite cigars. In the Afternoon, Josh and myself counted the Cuban cigars.

It was Porscha, Josh and myself on Saturday. We quickly picked our orders and then cleaned and stocked up the humidors ready for a busy Monday. We had Tony, one of our favourite regulars come in after seeing Foo Fighters! He was looking worse for wear but he treated himself to a Casa Turrent 1880 Maduro Robusto, he hasn’t tried a Casa Turrent yet so I hope he enjoys it as much as I do!

I hope you have enjoyed this slightly shortened entry, I hope to see you all in Norfolk very soon!

So long for now
