TheBulbBox.com is a unique way to leverage the reach of national brands and the influence of cigar experts to generate sales and support local businesses. (Open for Subscriptions on April 23, 2020 – further details below).
“The idea for TheBulbBox.com comes at an important time. It represents our genuine desire to support local businesses – “Keep the lights on” and help customers feel more connected to their local cigar retailer.” – MIKE CONDER, President and Co-founder of Crowned Heads
The COVID-19 public health crisis has significantly impacted cigar retailers and customers from across the country. Our sector is experiencing stores and lounges turning their lights off, confusion from customers, disappointment from people looking to connect with their friends. TheBulbBox.com is a monthly subscription that directly supports the local cigar retailer. Subscribers receive exclusive content, special deals, and access to live experiences with amazing special guests. The profits from Bulb go to retailers, to KEEP THE LIGHTS ON!
“TheBulbBox.com is a unique way to enjoy the exclusive experience, save money on their favorite cigars, and support local businesses.” – LUCIANO MEIRELLES, Co-founder of Ace Prime

Bulb will do all the work – including generating the marketing, creating momentum, and fulfilling the subscriptions. For cigar retailers, this is an opportunity to re-engage your “regulars,” acquire new customers and continue to provide a “sense of community.”
