The Shafter Tobacco Shop has been serving the community for a couple of years now and the business has stayed strong, despite the challenges of the pandemic and the governor's efforts to limit the scope of the businesses operating as smoke shops.
Owner Yassin Shaw said that the business has stayed strong because of the great people in Shafter and a loyal customer base that keeps them going through good times and tough times.
The shop has a variety of tobacco products, including cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, vape pens and related items.
Tobacco is not the only product in the shop. This shop has a little bit of everything, with a selection of jewelry in the store, as well as a large selection of t-shirts, with a variety of sayings and graphics.
They also carry a small selection of CBD products, including oils, rubs, supplements and other products that can be used for pain, relaxation and health.
Shaw has been operating the shop since 2019; he still owns and operates a gas station on Edison Highway. He said that Shafter residents have been very good to him, and he enjoys talking with customers and serving them any way he can.
