All in the Family
Widmer’s Tobacco has been around for years. Barry, the current owner took over from his father years ago and demonstrated that his father passed on more than a business to his son. He passed on his passion to. During a recent visit, I walked in on him mixing pipe tobacco by hand exactly the way his dad used to. The blend? Exactly the same that his dad taught him.
Originally, the shop sold cigarettes and pipe tobacco. The premium cigar twist is all Barry.
Barry has a large walk in humidor between the retail store and the smoking lounge in the back. Widmer carries an excellent variety of cigars. The extensive line-up includes Oliva, Ashton, My Father and DBL. He even has his own blend which will be reviewed soon and the link provided here.
Quaint and Clean
The shop has a very small lounge in the back. It is never crowded during my visits but the entire place is always immaculate.
I smoke a pipe. There are loads of pipe tobacco here from bulk hand blended tobacco to tins from various manufacturers. He also carries a great selection of pipes and accessories including lighters and ash trays.
No hookah gear. Just a beautiful selection of tools and items for pipe and cigar smokers. There is a fair amount of parking in the lot out front that is shared by other retailers. His hours are outstanding. Widmer is open until 10 PM even on Sunday.
Family owned and operated in Holmes, PA about 20 minutes from the Philadelphia Airport.
Great people and great product.
