Smoke ‘M – Chandler, AZ

Submitted by Rob on August 17, 2008 – 7:49 amOne Comment

Smoke ‘M is a head shop located in Chandler, Arizona masquerading as a cigar shop. Passing by Smoke ‘M you will notice multiple sings that boast of a “walk in humidor“, a new “cigar lounge“, and other cigar references. While this shop does sell some cigars, but I have to warn everyone: Smoke ‘M is NOT a cigar shop.

When you enter the Smoke ‘M establishment you see the “cigar lounge” is nothing more than a couch facing a wall. Yes – just facing a wall. There is no TV, music, or even a cigar ash tray to sit your smoke on.

Next to the “lounge” you will find the humidor. The humidor is just large enough to hold two adults. It is very empty, and not taken care of very well. I noticed a box of La Gloria Cubana Series R No. 5 Maduro sitting on the shelf. I took the liberty to open the lid to find the cigars were all dried out, cracked, and well…. not smokeable. Most of the cigars are flavored acids, there was a Gurkha infused tray, and other random smokes. To be honest my local grocery store Basha’s has a bigger selection of cigars.

From the limited inventory that Smoke ‘M offered I can tell you that the prices were quite high.

Smoke ‘M has had one person working in the store at every visit I made (Yes, I still did multiple visits). Never being greeted, never being offered any kind of assistance, and never even having eye contact with the worker made me never want to go in the Chandler head shop again.

Smoke ‘M has a great selection of Hookah’s, knifes, metal pipes, and other items some people might love. This little shop is not worth visiting if you are looking for a real cigar experience. Advertising as a full blown cigar lounge with a great cigar selection is a lie; I must provide the thumbs down.

    This is NOT a place to buy cigars. Now if you want a glass pipe to smoke your tobacco then this IS the place for you. I will not be going back.
