Mary Organic Food and Tobacco Opens In Williamsburg

WILLIAMSBURG-Mary Organic Food and Tobacco recently opened on Monticello Avenue near Midtown Row in the space formerly occupied by Williamsburg Drug Company.

Owners Bakil Abo and his uncle, Sammy Alsaidi, opened Mary Organic Food and Tobacco on July 5. The new retail store sells organic snacks and drinks such as kombucha, protein, CBD products, vaping products, and cigars and hookah supplies in both tobacco and non-tobacco forms. Part of the goal of the new business is to also help detox smokers from traditional cigarettes.

Abo decided to open the store because he wanted “to provide easy access for snack and daily accessories,” he said.

Though Mary Organic Food and Tobacco has only been open a week, Abo said he is “optimistic and happy” about the new business.

Response has been “very positive,” Abo said. “This is great for locals who don’t have to go to Hampton for their supplies.”
