Tobacco Shop

Editors’ Pick

Don’t look for Kools and Camels at Tobaccos of Hawaii—this quality tobacconist carries the good stuff. “We serve a niche market,” says owner Christopher Maxwell. Cigarette smokers can pick up premium brands such as Shepherd’s Hotel and Nat Sherman, as well as eight blends of Peter Stokkebye loose tobacco. Pipe smokers will want to check out the Mac Baren tobacco, and any smoking enthusiast will enjoy browsing through all the shop’s specialized tools and accessories, including cigarette-rolling machines, pipes and hookahs. If the store name sounds familiar, yes, Tobaccos of Hawaii was the one busted in 1999 (under a previous owner) for selling Cuban cigars. “We don’t sell them anymore; we learned his lesson,” says Maxwell. “But we got hundreds of thousands of dollars in free advertising and business skyrocketed,” he laughs. 512 Atkinson Drive, Suite 101, 942-7833.
