Alright I’m new to the world of cigars but cigars have always intrigued me. I am not currently a smoker but I have a question for the cigar aficionados here on the forum.

It’s said that the best place to keep a cigar is in a humidor so why do I see images of cigar shops with cigars laying around in the open as in these shops pictured below?






Also I encourage others to post images of their local cigar shops to give other “newbie’s” like myself an idea of what you have in your little corner of the world in the way of cigar businesses.

thank you

They're not just lying around in the open. Those rooms are just big walk-in humidors. They have big humidifying machines regulating the humidity in the rooms.

+1 $100k plus in inventory is not just laying around. Those rooms cost thousands of dollars to construct and the humidity controls are seriously top notch.

good point, I just notice some of these shops seem like regular retail / commercial locations without much in the way of such mentioned humidity control systems.

Some rooms don't seem like they have humidity control systems but they are engineered to be hide away systems. Cigars have to be kept right or you will not get your moneys worth on both ends.

A guy that used to work with my father opened a private cigar room/pool hall when he retired, he spent roughly 100k on ventilation and humidity control systems.

Most relative humidity (RH) systems are built-in the wood paneling of the walk-in humidors. The air vents you see on top of each shelf vaporizes the mist of distilled water to keep the room at the desired RH.
