• Business relocates from East Coast

    STURGIS  (8/17/11) – Jessica Carmichael, owner of Sturgis Cigar & Knife Co., recently opened her retail cigar and knife shop at 2275 Lazelle St.  Located in the Sturgis Coffee building, Jessica and husband Cory relocated this portion of the family business in time for the 71st Rally.  The custom engraving operation will open soon.

         The store features over 50 types of imported cigars, ranging from $3 – $30.  All cigars are housed in a fully encased, cedar-lined walk-in humidor to insure maximum freshness.

         Knives range from pocket knives to swords, and include rare, custom, and military collectibles dating back to the Civil War.

         The Sturgis Cigar & Knife Co. also carries firearms manuals and a variety of unusual gift items.  It will soon offer custom engraving and branding on marble and other unique surfaces.

         Jessica learned of South Dakota’s friendly business and tax climate while attending the 2011 SHOT Show as a vendor, promoting the engraving and printing portion of the business.  “After speaking with members of the GOED, SEDC, City of Sturgis and Meade County, I was amazed at how easy it is to do business here,” states Jessica.  “Everyone has been great to work with.  I’m looking forward to getting involved in the community.”

         The business has plenty of off-street parking and is open Monday-Saturday, 7:00 am – 6:00 pm.  For more info, call 605-347-0177.
