Smoke Rings, a new smoke shop, opens on Broadway


Smoke Rings, a new smoke shop, has opened on Broadway in downtown Asheville between Tiger Mountain and Loretta’s. Don’t know any more about it yet, but I’ll check it out.

Meantime, loyal reader Chris has a question about the shop’s sign:

I thought the sign ordinance in the central business district prohibited backlit signs this large. The U.S. Cellular Center and HomeTrust Bank are two nearby buildings with similar signs, but I believe they requested special permission. I don’t recall hearing anything about this shop, much less discussion about its sign. Maybe you know a bit more about the sign ordinance in downtown and backlit signs visible from I-240?

I’m looking into it.

After being disappointed with ashevilles other smoke shops due to the overall high prices and lack of selection i was skeptical of this new shop but when i walked into smoke rings i couldnt believe what i was seeing. As far as range of products and quality of products, this smoke shop is the real deal. It specializes mainly in high-end water pipes and they have some incredible pipes and some even better deals on them. I got a water pipe there for 110 that would have easily been over 300 anywhere else. In my opinion, don’t waste your time and money on any other shop.
