Leroy is a Meth Head – This meth head was banned from the store permanently after two complaints from two other customers witnessed this man attack Mr. Ray verbally and tell him that he is an fu##ing idiot and that the owner does not know how to run a business and threatened him with violence.
What the customer wrote in their complaint of this customer was that he was told that his tobacco is purchased with all of the tobacco and that menthol that he wanted was back ordered and the company didn’t have any. He was then told that they could not get it until the company sent it to us. Mr. Ray never said NO we won’t order it he said NO we can’t get it…..cause its backordered. We never say no we won’t get you something. Even if it is something we don’t usually carry we will still see if we can get it for you.
At this point MR. Meth started yelling and screaming that he wanted to talk to the owner and show him how to run a business (Apparently smoking meth inside of your broken down 78 white POS van down by the river is the same as running tobacco business). Mr. Meth was then asked to leave and never returned. He then proceeded to make threats of harm toward Mr. Ray asking him to come out side and see if he was still banned (at which point the complaints stated that the bystanders were going to forcibly remove him for his belligerence.) He refused to leave until the cops were called.
He is also a liar along with being a meth addict. I work at all the stores and he has never returned and he will never return. He is banned. When you get TWO complaints from by standing customers about the unacceptable actions of another customer ; that customer deserves a ban.
We have a stack of written praises and email praises talking about the expert knowledge and professionalism of Mr. Ray. He treats everyone with the same respect that he wants to be treated with.
Don’t listen to the ranting’s of drug addict that was the 3rd problem that we have had with Mr. Meth and now we will have no more.
Mill Plain Store Clerk Named Kevin – I love this store.... but the Mill Plain store in Vancouver earned the one star because of a clerk there by the name of Kevin Ray. I get along just fine with the other cats in the store but Kevin has been mad at me for complaining about running out of my fav tobacco a few months ago (it continues to happen). Kevin said it was the owners fault because of the budget. I questioned that and it escalated when I asked him to order more, he said no. If anyone is familiar with Kevin this come as no surprise. Basically, he threw me out. I have been back at least 7 times since that encounter, hung out with other cats that run the store and no prob. I made the mistake of going to the store today and he waited until the store was empty of other customers then threatened me with bodily harm if I didn't leave. Like I said...call first or take your business elsewhere. Kevins not worth the hassle and doesn't seem to care if he just chased a cool $1000 a year on smokes out the door..
pauls cigars is a verry home like place you can go incide and just relax smoke yr cigar and just hangout
Great Store – Paul's is a great, friendly place. It smells wonderful, and the staff is very knowledgeable. They welcome customers to hang out, chat, smoke, and watch television. They even have complementary cigar tastings sometimes. They helped me locate my beloved colibri lighter, and generally have good specials and discounts on high end cigarettes like Nat Sherman. Empty cigar boxes are available for $1 - $5. Also have an extensive selection of lighters, pipes, loose pipe or cigarette tobacco, filters, papers, candles, meerschaum, and about 100,000 cigars. Highly recommend!
