President, Tobacco Road
831 Marquette Ave.
Mark Taggatz has manned the family-owned tobacco shop in the heart of Downtown for 17 years.
While the public is increasingly turning up its collective nose at smokers, Taggatz is a proud smoker and passionate about his pipes and cigars.
He followed in the footsteps of his father Judd who opened the tobacco shop 34 years ago. Taggatz has worked at the smoke shop off -and on for 29 years. He likens a high-end, $20 cigar to a bottle of fine wine aged to perfection.
