Nanaimo is now home to the only specialty smoke shop north of Victoria on Vancouver Island.
Steve Wall recently opened Smoke Rings Cigar & Tobacco Company on Church Street, adjacent to the Dorchester Hotel. The store specializes in cigars from around the world, as well as pipe tobacco and smoking accessories such as humidors, pipes and cigar cutters.
“The shop is intended for discriminating smokers who smoke for the enjoyment of it, and not for those who are addicted to tobacco,” Wall said.
“A lot of people live between Duncan and Courtenay/Comox and I thought a specialty smoke shop in Nanaimo would do well. Word seems to be spreading fast and I’m pleased to say business has been good so far.”
