Cigars International to Open Superstore in San Antonio
Grand Opening on Target for May 2022
Bethlehem, PA (March 16, 2022) – Cigars International (CI) announced today that the company will open a CI Superstore in San Antonio. The new location will be the company’s third store in Texas and its eighth retail location in the U.S.
A grand opening event is slated for Saturday, May 14, 2022, with additional details to be posted on Facebook @CISanAntonioSuperStore and Instagram @CigarsInternationalSanAntonio.
The San Antonio SuperStore is located in The Landmark, at 5630 Landmark Parkway, on Highway 1604 and the I-10 corridor in the city’s bustling outer loop.
Sarah Santos, Senior Vice President of Scandinavian Tobacco Group, the parent company of Cigars International said, “San Antonio and the San Antonio-Austin corridor is one of the fastest growing regions in the country, with a trajectory that is predicted to continue over the next few decades. San Antonio’s highly-regarded economic development programs are driving the current influx of technology and electric automakers to the area which is adding to the stellar customer base that’s already in market. We look forward to serving the San Antonio community and its many visitors with our unique brand of cigar-centric hospitality.”
Billed as the ultimate cigar lover’s destination, the CI San Antonio Superstore spans 7,197 interior square feet, and like its fellow CI Superstores, has been designed to replicate a Northeast tobacco barn. Complete with a large-scale timber truss, CI San Antonio will be outfitted with an expansive, full-service bar and lounge, a private event space and more than 1,500 square feet of patio space with outdoor fire pits. Comfortable lounge seating, Wi-Fi and state-of-the-art ventilation will be available throughout the store to enhance the experience of CI guests.
CI has made impactful tweaks to enhance the San Antonio location. A fully-staffed concierge desk will be located at the store’s entrance to welcome guests, and the interior bar has been reimagined in a communal table style, allowing for more seating and easier conversation between patrons.
Dan Edwards, vice president of retail for Cigars International said, “At Cigars International, we are committed to bringing the very best of the premium cigar lifestyle to our guests. Our new San Antonio location has been created as an environment that encourages camaraderie, community and a good time in the company of friends old and new. We look forward to sharing our hospitality and our spectacular new store with the cigar lovers of South-Central Texas.”
