Specialty Cigar Shop Joins Ballantyne Village’s Diverse Selection Of Retailers ®

Charlotte N.C. - Tinder Box, purveyors of fine tobaccos and gifts, is the latest tenant in a long list of additions and improvements coming to Ballantyne Village.

Ballantyne Village, Ballantyne’s local shopping and entertainment venue, will host Tinder Box in its new 1,200-square-foot location scheduled to open in May. Tinder Box offers handmade cigars from around the world, in addition to pipes, tobacco accessories and gifts.

“We’re excited to have a destination retailer that provides a unique atmosphere to enjoy fine cigars. The addition of Tinder Box adds to Ballantyne Village’s overall effort to create a venue in which to enjoy all the great things about living in our area,” said Ed Camp, General Manager/ Marketing Manager at Ballantyne Village.

Ballantyne Village will be Tinder Box’s fourth location. The specialty cigar shop first opened its doors in SouthPark Mall in 1987, and has locations in the Arboretum in south Charlotte and uptown Charlotte’s Overstreet Mall.

“We’re very excited about our new location at Ballantyne Village,” said Craig Crass, owner of Tinder Box. “The Ballantyne market is currently under-served and is a fabulous area with a quality demographic.”

The newest Tinder Box location will have an upscale atmosphere, including a humidor made of Spanish cedar.

Ballantyne Village is a collection of shops and restaurants located in south Charlotte just across Johnston Road from Ballantyne Resort and Conference Center. It includes award-winning dining, salon and spa services, outdoor entertainment, an art house theatre and high-end shopping. Ballantyne Village was purchased by Vision Ventures and Mt.Vernon Management in October 2013, and is currently owned by Vision Ventures. It is currently managed by CNL and leased by MPV Properties.
