Felipe Gregorio Moves Headquarters, Opens Retail Store
Felipe Gregorio Moves Headquarters, Will Open Retail Store in Miami's Historic "Calle Ocho" District
Philip Wynne, founder and president of Felipe Gregorio, Inc., has announced the move of the company's headquarters from Alexandria, Virginia, to Miami, Florida. The company is a maker of robust, Cuban-style premium cigars. Wynne relocated the facilities and inventory to a newly-constructed office and warehouse in October, but the opening was delayed until November by Hurricane Wilma.
"After fifteen years of company growth," reports Wynne, "this move positions us closer to our factories in Central America and the Caribbean, which saves travel time and expense Our new, 5,000 square-foot office and warehouse have capacity for substantial growth in sales, enabling us to maintain good delivery schedules."
Wynne also is excited about the January opening of an elegant new Felipe Gregorio retail store, saying, "Our store will be located at 900 SW 8th Street, in the famous old Calle Ocho district of Little Havana. Cuban-American cigar makers lined the streets of Calle Ocho in the past, and we are proud to be one of the first cigar companies to move back into this historic area." The 2,000 square-foot upscale shop will feature a complete inventory of Felipe Gregorio products and an outdoor smoking area. A wine bar is planned for the near future. Wynne states, "Our new store will offer factory-direct bargains on special selections of Felipe Gregorio cigars, but the furnishings will be anything but a warehouse-style factory outlet."
Felipe Gregorio's striking double- and triple-wrapped Capas premium cigars are featured at the company's new retail store in Miami's Little Havana district.
