In 2002 we began wholesaling cigars to retail stores throughout Louisville, KY as C&J Cigars. Through our dedication to our clients our business grew quickly and today we are proud to say that we are one of the largest nationwide wholesalers in the state.
In 2007 we opened a booth at the Worlds Most Awesome Flea Market and the business boomed. In the fall of 2008 we went live with up-n-smoke.net and found a location to put our office, warehouse, and shipping facilities under one roof.
In 2010 we opened our first retail location in Shepherdsville, KY. It was there that we were able to showcase quality products in a large space: vaporizers, glass water pipes, glass hand pipes, storage containers, and many more products.
Knowledgeable staff in a truly judgement free zone has helped the brand continue to grow a loyal fan and customer base. From 2010 to 2018 we opened four more retail locations bringing the Up N Smoke brand to three retail locations throughout Louisville, KY and Shepherdsville, KY. In 2018 our wholesale business also boomed and we continue to thrive.
We look forward to continuing the spread of Up N Smoke to a neighborhood near you. Take a look at our origin story here:
