In 1971, Lew Rothman opened a small tobacco shop in New York City. Using his father’s initials, the founder eventually grew J&R Tobacco from its humble little storefront to become the largest online cigar retailer in the world. For 50 years, we have provided our customers with the highest quality products at the best possible price. This year, we are celebrating not just our storied past, but our bright future.
JR Cigar will be instituting a large and celebrated campaign for all of 2021. This celebration acknowledges and thanks to our loyal and dedicated customers, employees, and manufacturing partners. This year is not just about us, but about everyone involved in making us the company we are today.
We’re rolling out several new projects to make 2021 our best year yet. We’ve teamed up with several of our top manufacturers to bring in exclusive brands, limited editions, and private label cigars. These projects celebrate not just our 50 years in business but showcase the craftsmanship and ingenuity of our partners. You can expect releases from esteemed companies such as Altadis U.S.A., Rocky Patel, Crowned Heads, Aganorsa, Alec & Bradley, and several more.
JR Cigar will also introduce limited-edition accessories. From humidors to cutters and ashtrays, these items will be one-of-a-kind and made of the highest quality. Engagement with our customers has always been important to us. We’re offering several promotions and sweepstakes in appreciation for our customers’ support over the years.
Yes, 2020 was a difficult year, but as always, we are looking to the future. We are excited to have everyone join us in our 50th Anniversary celebration – and to 50 more years of success!
