The Townhouse is back in business.
Nat Sherman's famed Townhouse reopened on Friday after the company's acquisition by tobacco giant Altria Group Inc. resulted in a temporary closure of the midtown-Manhattan tobacconist. The Nat Sherman website, which went down at the same time, remains inactive as of Friday afternoon.
In a letter released Wednesday, Nat Sherman announced that "some minor interruptions to our business" forced the Townhouse and website to shut down, but stressed that the closure was only temporary.
The letter promised that the Townhouse would "reopen very soon, with the same great team in place."
The Nat Sherman Townhouse is a retail tobacconist and cigar lounge, with a large inventory of premium cigars including, but not limited to, Nat Sherman-branded smokes.
