A new smoke shop is opening on April 8 (Friday) on Mount Vernon Avenue in the heart of Del Ray, according to its manager.

Del Ray Cigars & More will open at 2104 Mount Vernon Avenue, and will offer cigars and cigarettes, vaping devices and liquids, and cannabidiol (CBD) products.

Owner Ahmed Zamani is out of the country and could not be reached for comment. Zamani also owns Main St. Cigars & Vapes in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

The building, which was built in 1902, was most recently home to the Counseling & Empowerment Center, which is now treating clients in an online-only format. It has been under redevelopment since last summer.

When open, its hours will be 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. throughout the week, except on Fridays when it will be open until 8 p.m.

The shop will join a number of nearby vape shops, including Avail Vapor at Potomac Yard and the Tobacco King & Vape King Cigar and Hookah.
