Tinderbox going strong in Phoenix

Submitted by Cliff on October 26, 2010 – 5:59 pm3 Comments

If you are a regular smoker of cigars in the East Valley of Phoenix Arizona there is a very good chance that you have been in Jeff Cayton’s Tinderbox before.  Jeff has been in the business for years and has a wonderful reputation in the industry.  His store is known for its selection and expertise.  Jeff carries everything from cigars, cigar accessories, pipes, and pipe tobacco, to knives, candles, and hooka gear.  His humidor is one of the larger humidors in the region at over 900 square feet of jam packed, perfectly kept cigars for your smoking pleasure.  He is well known for his partnership with Camacho Cigars in offering the Camacho Club, a private lounge for paying members only.  The one thing that Jeff Cayton was lacking on his punch card, besides  World Dominance, is another cigar shop.  Well, as of August 2010, you can check that off his list…

Jeff reciently acquired a second Tinderbox location in Mesa, AZ, doubling his presence in the east valley and giving him the reins to a already successful store.  The “Mesa” Tinderbox location that Jeff purchased was open for over 13 years and was a landmark in the Phoenix area.  With the former owners uninterested in extending the lease on the property Jeff saw opportunity and picked up the shop…

So, after some deep cleaning and a facelift the Tinderbox Mesa location is open again with the same doors open, the same humidor full of cigars, same great selection of pipes and pipe tobacco but, with a Jeff Cayton twist. The shop features a members only Diamond Crown Lounge that was also resurrected. The paying members of either one of Jeff’s private clubs have the added benefit of taking advantage of both the Mesa Diamond Crown Lounge and the Camacho Club, the members only lounge at Jeff’s Awatukee location.  Two clubs for the price of one, a luxury that few others can offer.

With the new store and new ownership comes new people.  Jeff’s long time employee and friend Tom Lacaria is the General Manager of the new Mesa store.  Tom along with Drew Goding, a young knowledgeable aficionado bring a great vibe to the Mesa location.  It’s a definite must see for those of you that haven’t been in before and it is definitely worth a “revisit” for those of you that have.

    I go to the Tukee Tinderbox often, I will have to visit the Mesa store this weekend. Interesting… Events look fun though…

    Does this tinder box carry or will they carry the new creation by the Martin Family? I believe they are called Pedro Martin Cigars. Named after the original owner of Tropical Tobacco, brands like Cacique and Centennial.
