Ben Rodgers Large Apple NYC Estate Pipe Condition:Used “minute normal rim wear..No Issues Ready to Smoke”
Note:Ben Rodgers (1904-1991) was the greatest man I've ever known. My father owned a small pipes and tobacco store just off of Times Square in Manhattan. Although 1083 Ave. of The Americas (right next to Horn and Hardart Cafeteria and across the street from Bryant Park) was a small shop, he utilized every square inch and had an amazing selection of pipes in all price ranges, including his own brands, as well as tobacco, imported cigarettes, etc. Even though his shop was small, he had an extremely wide reach that included a mail order business where he shipped all over the country. Customers would travel long distances to see him. When I was growing up, I used to work there on Saturdays. He taught me about retailing and that the customer was always right and to treat everyone with respect. This helped me to grow up and be a successful retailer in a different industry. Howard Rodgers
