Brookline News? I'm not familiar with the place, but I'm sure I could find it. Right now I've just been going crazy on c-bid. So, I should be pretty well stocked soon. I do enjoy buying a single every once in a while to try something new though.I work down the street. I am curious now... Will walk by there in a couple of hours to find out and report back. That will be a pity if they closed. Jose is nice guy and had a pretty good business, at least I thought?
There's other places to get cigars too you may want to check out. Have you been to Brookline News on Harvard St?
No. Looks like a good time to score some deals in there. He usually has a big sale this time of year and if you are in the market for some serious cigars, I bet he'll mark down stuff at tough to pass up prices.When you were in there did you ask them why their phone number is out of service?
After I mentioned to my friend that you said it was still open he wandered in there. As I had seen last time I was there and he confirmed they've done away with the center island in the humidor and have cut back significantly on their inventory.No. Looks like a good time to score some deals in there.

The walk-in is not as packed as it use to be. I think he's running the operation leaner than years past? He mentioned the cigar business has been slow this season.
It's a real shame. It used to be a great place with a great selection of cigars.Ya, the store is just a shell of what it use to be. Jose needs to do a little renovation and reinvention to the shop. It's a great space in a great location, but it's been weathered down a little, and I think pessimism of the local cigar scene has taken its toll.
A lot of cigar smokers do not have taste and catering to them must be a drag.
