Default aweome local shop!

So my local tobacco shop sells a limited amount of hookah supplies. But he does have the best prices around!

He is ordering SB for me cheaper than his regular price for me! He usually sells Sb for 15.99! A great price, but i ordered white peach (my fav!) and raspberry! only 14.99 a tin!! i couldn't ask for a better local shop!!

If you live in IL and you want a great place to buy from he is the man to see, pm me if u want more info!

my guess is that:

1. this is sold somewhere where tobacco taxes are less than alot of other
places

2. there are no tobacco taxes being reported and this is being sold illegally

i highly doubt that its illegal, everything is through the register of the store that he owns. i get a receipt with tax shown. His price is usually 15.99 for a 250g tub and i buy a lot from him so he cut me a deal.

and yes they are 250g tins, but no he does not sell through the web.

The cash register receipt only shows sales tax. many states have an additional OTP (other tobacco tax) that is built into the retail price you pay for the tobacco. If he is retailing a 250 g tub for 14.99, there is something bizarre going on. IL has an 18% OTP tax, sooooo .....he's selling below cost if he's reporting the invoice to his states Comptroller for the appropriate taxation.

like i said he is giving me a deal since i buy so much from him. His usual price is $15.99 Its the same as best buy selling new release dvds for close the same price they buys the dvds for, which they do every week. maybe im wrong, but im gettin a great deal and the man has been in business for 10 yrs at the current location

and if i dont get that deal 15.99 cant be beat! i have no idea what his buying price is, so is that price still too cheap?

i thought that, but ive bought offline from john and MNH and it seemed the same as ive bought from the local shop. Unless i couldnt tell the difference, ive never had any fake SB and known it was fake, so its hard to know for sure

maybe he knows someone at the starbuzz factory and he gets deals...

or he buys in bulk and gets discounts for buying in bulk AND being a distributor..
and he doesnt need that big of a profit

200g Al Waha tin, AUD$37 not including shipping (domestic)of $10 and a MINIMUM BUY OF 2 TINS OF THE SAME FLAVOUR! Last time I ever buy anything from there. Replenishing my shisha stocks is gradually happenning at least.

Yeah, so where's a cool place to start off living in the US? Haha
