Cigar lovers in New York would recognize the name Brown in an instant. This cigar store in Corning, New York is widely acknowledged as an institution by itself, having been part of the communityâ€™s daily life since the 1800s. A little description from the storeâ€™s web site:
Brown’s Cigar Store is the heart of Corning’s Gaffer District and a time honored tradition, offering the Corning area the finest cigars and tobacco products, brands from A. Fuente, Dunhill, H. Upmann, Macanudo, Padron & Zippo to name a few.
Since 1889 Brown’s Cigar Store has been a place where your grandfathers got a haircut, purchased steamship tickets, discussed family, friends, politics and solved the world’s problems. At Brown’s Cigar Store you can take that step back in time. The glass, oak and marble humidors keep all tobacco products at their very best.
Brown’s Cigar Store is proudly owned by the Smith Family. Sue, Terry & Bejay are second generation tobacconists with many years of experience and knowledge.
This year, Brownâ€™s Cigar store is celebrating a hundred and twenty years of existence and the rest of the cigar world celebrates with them. We all know that the economic problems have been affecting the cigar industry â€“ as well as other â€œluxuryâ€ industries â€“ but the owners of the store are optimistic. And why not? They have been here for more than a century, whatâ€™s another 50 years or so?
