A store that offers the best quality products to be had anywhere in the world and combines them with the highest level of service. This service excellence entails providing customers with an exclusive location to relax and enjoy their favorite cigar or tobacco in a first-class lounge environment. I have been successful in creating this type of atmosphere in my three existing locations on Long Island. Matador Cigars is my first love and I will always be driven and humbled by the blessing I have enjoyed with these wonderful products. I must acknowledge, with gratitude, the contribution made by our amazing staff and the trust shown by our knowledgeable customers. Without all of them, I would not be where I am today. Thank you.”
