About Us

About Our Shop

 Established in 1984, Urban Centre Tobacco and News was created to fulfill the needs of the occupants and clients of the professional offices and the hotel and restaurant guest. The store carries gift items, stationary, snacks, beverages and toiletries. In addition, and what really makes us unique is, we have a humidor! We have a wide selection of premium cigars.We also have three house labels. These offerings were born from the founder's family ties to the cigar industry and his affection for Tampa.    

A New Chapter

 After 34 years of successful operation, Urban Centre Tobacco and News is under new ownership. Jeff and Lisa Black take over in September 2017. Jeff is a Tampa Native and has a background in the retail cigar industry. He is a Veteran of the United States Navy. Lisa  is an active duty Soldier in the United States Army.   

 We are excited about this new adventure. We will be expanding our cigar selection and adding new items. Come in and check us out if you are in the area. We look forward to meeting you.
