I've done business with Cigars International.com and Pipes and Cigars.com for quite a while. A little while back I got a catalog in the mail from Pipes and Cigars, and I noticed that their mailing address is 1911 Spillman Dr, Bethlehem, PA 18015. That sounded familiar, but wasn't sure why. Then I got a Cigars International catalog and I figured out why - their mailing address is also 1911 Spillman Dr, Bethlehem, PA 18015. It's the same address, but I never noticed this until now - and I've been doing business with them both for several years. If you look at their websites, you'll see both are formatted the same. This leads me to believe that they are, in fact, the same company. I'm not sure why this is, since both offer cigars and pipe tobacco. However, CI has less pipe tobacco inventory than does Pipes and Cigars. Have they always been the same company? If not, when did they merge? If they recently merged, then why? Anybody out there have any idea why or when this happened?
