The Tinder Box in Mesa will be the second cigar store in the Phoenix area to close its doors this month, as owner Jeff Cayton sent out an email to customers on Wednesday morning announcing the store's closure.
Cayton didn't cite a reason for the store's closing after nearly 20 years of business, saying only that customers are invited down before Saturday, May 31 at 6 pm to get deals on cigars as well as fixtures and other items in the store. The store is also home to a Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge, and Cayton said that those memberships can be transferred to the Ahwatukee location.
Earlier this month, GoodFellas Cigar Lounge in north Phoenix announced that it would be closing as of May 31, citing lease issues. Mojito Cigar Lounge in Cave Creek also closed in April, but the owners are working on the launch of a new cigars and coffee concept called Smoke and Joe that is slated to open in the coming weeks.
The Tinder Box is located at 1457 W Southern Ave #110 in Mesa. For more information, you can call (480) 644-9300.
