Surprises in LA
Our business went from strength to strength and, in 2009, I was invited to attend the God of Fire Cigar Dinner in LA. Little did I know that Keith, the owner of God of Fire, had a surprise in store for me.
I got to the dinner and he asked me if I wouldn't mind getting up and saying a few words... at the very beginning of the dinner! Standing behind the podium he presented me with the God of Fire Double Corona (my favourite size) and I opened the dinner.
Let's go digital
In 2013 JMP left the London Court store and I tasked him with re-doing our online store. We built a website and started Devlins Online to showcase over a dozen brands. Our focus is helping you choose gifts for the hardest people to buy for.
This bubbly young lady came bouncing in to her interview talking a mile a minute. I wasn't sure if she'd be great or terrible - but I knew I had to give her a shot! Fast forward 3 months and she was running our London Court store full time. Shortly after she became the head of our flagship store in Subiaco where she still is today.
