Next month Dissident Cigars was planning on releasing the 2020 edition of its Home release. However, in order to support its retail partners during the Coronavirus pandemic, the company has announced a partial allocation of the Home release to select retailers.

“I was waiting until next month when the whole of the shipment was stateside to release the HOME 2020 in full force, but with the current situation many retailers are in as a result of the Coronavirus I am releasing the 50 boxes we do have to a select few in hopes of helping them with their sales during these trying times,” stated owner Benjamin Holt in a press release.

Holt continues, “Many of our retail partners are feeling the pinch this situation has created and I want to do what I can to help them out. They are the bread and butter that make this industry function. I know it’s not much, but I hope this might help give them some kind of boost until this situation passes over. They have employees and bills to pay and families to support. I want to do what I can to help. I want to encourage consumers to keep supporting their shops during this time.”
