Happy New Year!
As we begin 2018, I wanted to take a moment and say thank you to all of our wonderful customers. With your support and patronage, the Briar Patch continues to thrive. We are saddened to hear of the multiple stores across California who have been forced to close their doors in 2017 due to increased taxes, rent, and legislation. FDA legislation are rules are still looming, but we are hopeful for the success of the current lawsuit to address the FDA intrusion into the premium tobacco business.
In 2017, the Briar Patch has survived the increased taxes, losing one of our locations, and impending legislation. We have increased our hours at the Downtown location to accommodate the growth, and will continue to evaluate our offerings to best serve you. Without your support, the success of the Briar Patch would not be possible. We look forward to a successful 2018 in the cigar and tobacco business!
Thank you, and I hope you have a wonderful 2018.
Owner, Briar Patch
