No longer accepting CBS Radio certificates – Found Charlie's through a half-price promotion through CBS Radio. Never would have found it otherwise. Was using the certificates as a way to get into the cigar hobby without breaking the bank but every time I flashed one at the register, I sensed the owner wasn't thrilled. Fine then, don't offer them in the first place. Thought it was just my imagination. It wasn't.
Went last week and was told the half-price certificates were no longer being accepted, the claim being they were over-printed. Immediately, I knew this wasn't the case, seeing as the website which sold them had 30+ remaining when it shut down. CBS Radio confirmed that the owner had been calling the station for weeks because he didn't want to accept them anymore. They expire on June 30th and rather than ride it out for the final month and maintain the promise he made, he bailed in the final month. Very lame. It's an extremely simple concept -- don't get involved with a promotion if you don't plan to honor your end. I posted this sentiment on Charlie's Facebook page, the post was deleted and I was unfriended. Brilliant!

Editorial Review – Smoke shop caters to afficionados with a large selection of fine cigars and humidors.
Great Smoke Shop, Cigars, Pipes, tobacco, humidors, lighters, travel cases, cigar club, pipe night + more! – Charlie's has it all period. Weddington Rd. and Johnston Rd smoke shops in South Charlotte. They now have new pipe professionals with good selections. If you need an excellent estate pipe then you are in luck as well. Larry the owner manager in usually at either store to help you out. He is good people. He wants to make sure your time invested at the shop is a memorable one. If you are just trying one smoke for the first time or you have a loyal brand they are the shop for you. Looking to travel to smoking events in town or abroad then look in to Charlie's! Some of the best trips and friendships have started at these events. Cigar and pipe lockers are available for rental and the Weddington store but I think the Johnston Rd store with have them soon as well? Ask Larry or the management about joining the cigar club! It is a huge success and it is well worth it for all the bargins pushed your way! I have visited all the cigar stores in Charlotte and most are pretty good however Charlie's is the best in my humble but totally accurate opinion. Scott Cunius
Give Charlie's A Try!!! – Charlie's Tobacco outlets are great places to find fine humidified smokes in nice walk-in humidors. They have great selections from abroad. If you want to stay and light up they have comfortable areas in which to banter with other cigar aficionados. In addition they have a great cigar club that consistently invites top names in the cigar world to come and speak to its members for a night at the store or on the town. Charlie's is not an uptight place where you would feel uncomfortable either. If you are new to cigar lore then they will get you up to speed at your own pace. Rocky Patel was one of the latest visitors this past fall. The only weak point in the stores would be there lack of pipes and good pipe tobacco. All in all they have great prices with an excellent store front with good service. Give Charlie's a try!!! Scott Cunius
