The Cigarette Store, LLC (TCS) dba Smoker Friendly has acquired 21 Smoke ‘N GO, LLC, stores based out of Abbeville, LA. Smoker Friendly will continue to sell the SF Private Label brands as these stores were licensed with Smoker Friendly International. Smoker Friendly will operate these stores with the continued dedication to customer service and product selection that Smoke ‘N GO customers are accustomed to.
“What a great team TCS is to work with! Our transaction was seamless and could not have gone better. Our former associates are in good hands with a terrific operation. These stores provide a great opportunity for Smoker Friendly to grow in Louisiana,” commented Fred Hoyt.
Terry Gallagher Jr., CEO of Smoker Friendly, stated: “We’ve been friends with Fred for many years, so when he reached out earlier in the year expressing a desire to exit the business, we were able to get a transaction put together pretty quickly. We are very excited about the stores and our opportunity in Louisiana! We are actively pursuing additional acquisitions and are extremely bullish on our growth opportunities.”
