February 12, 2013 (Washington, D.C.) — Through increased sales and a consolidation of facilities, La Palina is able to announce an average price DECREASE of 10% on some of its most popular lines.

According to La Palina founder and President Bill Paley, “I wanted to pass along the savings we have gained to our loyal customers. My family has always believed that La Palina is quality at affordable prices.”“With sales exceeding our forecasts last year, we were able to re-negotiate better terms with one of our factories. These new prices, coupled with our December move into a new distribution warehouse in Miami, have created a savings we are proud to pass along,” adds La Palina Vice President Courtney Smith.

Andrew Brennan, La Palina Director of Sales, carefully crafted the new pricing structure based on his experience in the industry and conversations with key retailers. “We feel these new prices will reinforce La Palina’s dedication to retailers and consumers alike.” The new prices will be effective immediately and will reflect an average MSRP decrease of 10% and effects the La Palina El Diario—a consistently top rated cigar—and the newly released La Palina Maduro

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
