Welcome from the extreme southern extension of what was once part of modern Canada. Arkansas, when it was part of France, was ruled out of Quebec, so it was technically part of Canada. At another time it was owned and ruled by the Spanish out of Antigua, Guatemala, so it was technically part of Central America. Man, this continental drift is getting be dizzy, better sit down with a brewski and a bowl.

Welcome JB and big "HI" from Southern Ontario. Wawa is beautiful - you're a lucky guy to live there. I've only been once but I intend to come back.
I do most of my purchases online with 4Noggins, Pipesandcigars, cupojoes. 4Noggings will do First Class Mail International (most cost effective) shipping if you keep your order under 3lbs. Only about 20% of my orders from the US get tagged at Canada Customs for duty/taxes - the rest slip through. Even with the tax there is a huge savings to order from the US (right now). A $5 pouch or $7 tin from US costs me anywhere from $19-$27 around here. A 3lb order cost me around $100 with shipping. Even if I get taxed at the border for another $50 it's still a huge savings since that quantity of tobacco is valued at around $600 here. I still buy the odd tin locally but try to stick to e-tailers for most of my orders. Hope this helps. Happy Puffin'!
