About us

Situated in the beautiful seaside town of Newquay, Johnny’s Tobacconist is an established and respected local business with a history that dates back to the late 1800s and is Cornwall’s ONLY specialist tobacconist.

Johnny’s opened for trading over 100 years ago and has been ran by the Parkin family since 1970 when Ted took over the already successful business which was, at the time, situated just down the road. After overseeing the shop’s move to its current location on Bank Street and more than 30 happy years at the helm, Ted retired and Johnny’s has been captained by his son Jess for the past 14 years.

Since taking over the business, Jess has gradually changed its focus from a traditional confectioner and tobacco shop, to a specialist tobacconist, selling premium quality tobacco, cigarettes and smoking-related products alongside traditional gentlemen’s accessories such as hip flasks, walking sticks, pocket knives and old-style shaving accessories.

After a request from a customer in 2007, Johnny’s became one of the first retail outlets in the UK to sell electronic smoking products and we are now well respected in the vaping community for our expert advice, vast range of top quality e-liquids and ever-expanding range of hardware.

Like many retailers, we’re currently experiencing an unprecedented high demand and a staff shortage as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.

There may be a delay in processing your order and the Royal Mail delivery service we use may be disrupted so please be patient.

Please do not phone or send unnecessary emails querying when your order will arrive, as this only increases our workload. You’ll receive an email when your order has been completed (despatched) and an email from Royal Mail once your order has a delivery date.

Please note that Royal Mail Tracked 24 and Tracked 48 are not guaranteed timescales, they are an aim so deliveries may take longer and that on 31st March 2020 Royal Mail changed their Special Delivery to guaranteed by 9pm the next working day after despatch due to the current crisis.

Thanks for your support and understanding.
