Welcome to The Vault

Moving Soon To A Brand New Location!

Empire Cigars Apex will be moving to new location soon, date to be announced on Facebook & Twitter 1510 North Salem Street Apex, NC 27502

What you can expect from us is a variety of cigars that rivals any, all at a fair price and excellent client service to boot. We will feature a spacious smoking lounge with 4 TVs (including a 60" big boy), complete with the NFL Sunday Ticket and the Golf Channel. If outdoor smoking is to your liking, then you will love our 900 sq ft patio (open year round with heating towers).

We have more surprises in store for you, but you need to drop by to see for yourself!!

My Philosophy

When I came to North Carolina 5 years ago and and I opened my first shop in Raleigh, Empire Cigars, I brought with me a passion for premium cigars that I have been sharing with my patrons ever since. For the past twenty years, I have sampled cigars from all over the world. I am determined to share my experiences with everyone. For me, it's about the journey...

I'm now introducing our new store to Apex. Hope you'll join us and let your own "journey" begin!
