Welcome to our store! We're a small, specialized, online humidor store headquartered in Chicago and our simple goal is to help you create an excellent cigar-smoking experience. Unlike large and impersonal big-box retailers that carry every product under the sun, we focus 100% on cigar humidors and accessories. We know our humidors inside and out and we will personally help you select the perfect one so you can properly maintain and age your cigars like fine wine.
Kevin - Owner and Customer Consultant
Hi, I'm Kevin, the owner of Northwoods Humidors and the one responsible for making sure this online humidor store is a favored destination for cigar enthusiasts like yourself. I'm knowledgeable about our line of humidors, and eager to answer any questions you may have.
I'm a former U.S. Marine and proudly served from 1997-2001 in Yuma, AZ. Originally from Wisconsin, I now call Illinois home. When I'm not working, I enjoy snow-shoeing, kayaking, hiking, and smoking a cigar with friends.
Certified Consumer Tobacconist (CCT)
Kevin is a Certified Consumer Tobacconist. He has proven his knowledge in the luxury tobacco industry and represents a very small and special niche of aficionados.
In order to be certified, Kevin had to pass a series of tests that qualified him as an expert in the field. We are very happy to celebrate this accomplishment, as this knowledge will be used at Northwoods Humidors to give you the answers you're looking for!
My Promise to You
I grew up in the Northwoods of Wisconsin, and going back nowadays to visit is a relaxing experience similar to enjoying a well-aged, handmade cigar. I decided to name my company Northwoods Humidors, to emphasize the relaxing experience of lighting up a good stogie. My goal is to help you properly maintain and age your cigars so you can always have the best possible smoking experience. Like any worthwhile hobby, cigar smoking is an experience I enjoy to relax. It also allows me to day-dream and wax nostalgic about the past. I hope you find your experience on my store here as relaxing and enjoyable as a cigar.
If I'm fortunate enough to earn your business, I wIll provide you with the professional, prompt and friendly service you deserve. And in the unlikely event something goes wrong with your order or shipment, I'll work to resolve any problems as quickly as possible. Because my business depends on word of mouth, I want you to be happy with the service and product you receive, and I will do whatever I can to ensure that's the case – that's my personal guarantee.
Thank you for the opportunity to earn your business. I wish you a relaxing and enjoyable cigar-smoking experience!
Erica - Administrative Assistant
Hey everyone! I am the newest member of the Northwoods Humidors team. I grew up in a small town in the outskirts of New York City. I enjoy any and all activities that involve being outside and immersed in nature. Snowboarding in the winters and hiking my way through summer and fall. Luckily, upstate New York has it all. I am always looking for ways to work my creative muscles. Recently I have put a minor in Journalism to good use in freelance writing!
I spent a large portion of my life in the service industry. After managing a popular nightclub in Brooklyn, NY, I landed a job as the sole virtual administrator for Backpack Buddha, an e-commerce shop based out of Nepal. As the starting point to my digital career, I was given the opportunity to build my expertise in online communication and marketing. Now, with Northwoods Humidors I am able to harness these skills and continue to grow! I already feel at home in this company. Currently I am developing our virtual portfolio as well as building out some of Northwoods Humidors’ social media platforms. I hope to continue serving our customers well while creating long lasting relationships with all of you wonderful shoppers!
Why Choose a Humidor from Our Team?
We're Humidor Experts
We specialize in ONE area, and that's humidors. Most of our competitors carry every cigar under the sun, and happen to sell a few humidors on the side. Not us! We focus exclusively on humidors and cigar accessories so that we can offer you outstanding service and expertise.
Outstanding Customer Consultation
We take outstanding care of our customers, and want to earn a reputation as a place you can count on to deliver quality, dependable service. You need to be confident that the company you buy from will support you before AND after the sale so that your investment in cigars is always protected. Whether you are new to buying a humidor or buying your first quality humidor, we will answer all your questions.
Hassle-Free Buying: Free Shipping & No Sales Tax
Lastly, I want to ensure you can buy with ease. You don't have to worry what the final price of your humidor purchase will be, because I pay for shipping on humidors and I don't charge sales tax (unless you are an Illinois resident due to state law). That way, you know that the product price is the total price for your purchase----no add-on fees or taxes once you check out.
