Baxter's Cigars 2.0 Store Reopening

$3,450 of $50,000 goal

Sug Baxter
on behalf of Joseph Barnett
Originally opened in 2013, Baxter's Cigars quickly became a neighborhood business catering to a diverse clientele—later regarded as "Baxter's Family".

Baxter's Cigars created a unique place for people to gather and bond. People from all walks of life and economic backgrounds came in to Baxter's to discuss the day's accomplishments, issues of the day, cigar recommendations and generally enjoy the company of strangers, who in the end became friends.

What the money is being raised for?
The relocation and rebuilding/remodeling of the Baxter's Cigar store.

How the money will be used?
Monies gathered through this campaign will be used for the following:
- Construction costs for framing, drywall, electrical, plumbing, and essential building costs.
- Painting, facade signage, and security.

How soon will we need the funds?
The funds we are gathering need to be received by February 28th, 2017 for a reopening in early March, 2017.

Why this means so much to Baxter's Cigars?
Since Baxter's closing in early 2016, customers had lost the place that meant so much to many. Not even the other stores in Phoenix could satisfy the family that was created by it's owner, Joseph Barnett. There was a hole left in the collective heart of it's regular customers.

Many kept in-touch and urged Joseph to find a new location as soon as possible so the family could be whole once more.

In October of 2016, after nearly a year of searching and a couple failed attempts to acquire a new space, a building had finally been found. 

It will need some work to get it where it needs to be. With your help, we hope to realize this dream and give back to our local community.
