PRINCETON — Mandy Workman has opened Mandy’s Tobacco Outlet and Cigar Emporium at 104 S. Main St., Princeton.

“We sell cigarettes and roll your own cigarette supplies and equipment,” she said. “We also have vapor merchandise such as juices, cartridges and batteries for electronic cigarettes.”

The store also has two humidors for cigars plus sells candy and soda products. It also has some pipe tobacco and zero nicotine cartridges.

Workman used to work at a drive-through liquor store before deciding to open this “mom and pop store.”

“I am selling smokes at a decent price,” she said. “I offer it at a decent price to share the wealth. I want to sell it a good price and still survive, plus I get to be my own boss,” she added.

Workman grew up in Kentucky and has lived in this area for 14 years, seven in Wyanet and seven in Princeton. She also has a bulletin board in her store for people to put cards or fliers advertising community events.

She also sells specialty cigars that come with labels for events such as anniversaries, weddings or births.

The store’s hours are from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday. The Facebook page address is www.facebook.com/mandystobacco.
