So it was interesting to see, and rather hopeful, that most (61% of respondents) were going to spend about the same as they have last year. Of course, this may change because of the economy (e.g., losing one’s job midway through). Add to that another 24% who said they’d spend more than last year and I think that the odds are in favour for many cigar places to survive. So I that note, I was curious as to where we’d be spending our money: online or in-person?
I tend to do online myself because of ease but prefer, where possible, a good in-person B&M with a friendly face and nice place to sit.
