Premium Cigar Association

Growing the Business of Specialty Tobacco Retailing

The Premium Cigar Association (PCA) is the leading authority and advocate for the premium cigar and pipe retailer industry. The PCA is dedicated to the current and future success of brick and mortar premium tobacconists. Founded in 1933 as the Retail Tobacco Dealers of America, the PCA is the largest, most active, and longest-running trade association which represents specialty tobacco retailers, and supports manufacturers and partners in the industry.

The PCA is truly a small-business association as 84% of our retail members are single-store owners.

“PCA membership to me is not about one single thing, like the trade show or lobbying. It’s our premium tobacconist community that brings us together to learn from each other, grow together, combine our voices to effect real change to help our entire industry.”
Harris Saunders, Cigars and More
