Is there anywhere to buy Gauloises Cigarettes in Austin, Texas?

I split my time living in Vienna, Austria, and Austin, Texas. I enjoy smoking Red Gauloises cigarettes, and I prefer them to the American Cigarettes. I'll be in Austin for the next 4 months, and I would love to find a store around here that sells them. If any of you Austinites could help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

Try Wiggy's, 1130 West 6th Street. It's been years since I lived in Austin, but they used to have them.

Gauloises longer exports to the US. I believe this happened a few years ago. I was told by a tobacconist that increasing US legislation/taxation on cigarettes made it more trouble than it's worth so they just stopped. I haven't seen them since.

Epoch Coffee on North Loop, perhaps? They might know where else to look.

To my knowledge, Gauloises are no longer imported into the US. I could be wrong, however.
