General Info
We are committed to expanding and tailoring our business to the Alaska cigar connoisseur. Please feel free to contact us with requests and recommendations, we are happy to accommodate. We are located at 531 E 5th Avenue, the yellow building in downtown Anchorage. Many Alaskans will remember this location as Pete's. We as the new owners also remember this location as Pete's and are determined to return the business to it's former glory. Pete's won Press Picks 'Best of' in 2012, and we intend to bring this honor back. We have just completed the first phase of our remodel. Our smaller walk-in humidor (150+ sq.ft) rebuild is done. In addition to the new flooring, lighting, and an updated look throughout, we update the infrastructure as well. We have installed new automated control and monitoring systems for humidity, temperature and air exchange, insuring quality in our selection. We will be continuing with remodeling our lounge, as well as increasing its square footage and amenities. We will also be expanding and remodeling our retail space, complete with new displays, new lighting, and new retail product lines will be brought in. With the efficiency of our humidors restored we have begun building our on-hand cigar selection. We have lots of humidor space available to us and we intend to fill every square inch. That means new cigars are arriving more than once a week. We take special orders at no additional charge. If we don't currently have what you want, let us know and we will stock it. You can even make requests in advance, just give us a day or two (in most cases) and we'll have your brand in.

I highly recommend you stop in and check out this store. The staff is very helpful, courteous, and patient. They have a huge selection of cigars with a very nice walk-in humidor. They also have all your cigarette needs as well as bulk tobacco's. You will find a variety of other products such as shaving supplies, lighters, pipes, and much more. Conveniently located in downtown Anchorage across from the Sheraton Hotel.

This cigar shop is the greatest! With its walk-in humidor, the smells are delightful, the taste exquisite, and also they have all your tobacco needs as well. Fresh tobacco's to fit your budget, rolling papers of all kinds, filters, rolling machines, the works! I also love the pipes to accomodate your specific needs and budget. The atmosphere is welcoming, warm, and friendly. Of course the staff are especially knowledgeable, courteous, friendly, and not judgemental if you aren't as savvy as the connoisseur but will answer all your questions with a friendly smile, never making you feel awkward or uneasy because maybe you never smoked a cigar in your life. I always enjoy myself there and I feel as though I can chat it up for a but and not feel pressured to buy something and hurry on my way, rather, I feel like they genuinely care about their customers and eagerly and happily enjoy giving them a unique shopping experience. I give them a 5 star rating out of 5 stars and tell all my friends about them as well as anyone else looking for tobacco products and accessories.

Sincerely,
JAL

In search of a cigar I found this place. In hindsight... it found me. The street sign outside read '' Nothing, but sleep or food should ever disturb a man from enjoying his cigar '' - Mark Twain
