Zippo was founded in Bradford, Pennsylvania in 1932 when George G. Blaisdell decided to create a lighter that would look good and be easy to use. Blaisdell obtained the rights for an Austrian windproof lighter with a removable top, and redesigned it to his own requirements. He made the case rectangular and attached the lid to the bottom with a welded hinge, and surrounded the wick with a windhood. Fascinated by another recent invention, the zipper, Blaisdell called his new lighter "Zippo", and backed it with a Lifetime Guarantee.

Smoker’s Outlet, a family owned business established in 1997, was originally opened to give the smokers of York, PA the opportunity to purchase a wide selection of cigarettes and other smoking-related items in a friendly, customer service oriented store. A little over six years after the opening of that first retail outlet, Smoker’s Outlet Online was born.
