The Maine Street Cigar Company held its grand opening on Saturday, February 10, in front of the Historic Churchill Bank Building. The Fallon Chamber of Commerce and Chamber Ambassadors were on hand to watch as proprietor Bill Post cut the red ribbon.

The new store hails itself as a gentlemen’s mercantile offering premium cigars and other accessories like cuff links, ties, shaving brushes and mug sets. Of course, the main focus of the store is the temperature-controlled cigar room, where large humidors hold dozens of premium cigars from around the world. Customers can also choose from a variety of other tobacconist tools like cigar cutters, lighters, and cigar sets.

“When we moved here in September 2021, I went to find a good cigar and couldn’t find one,” he explained as his reasoning for opening the specialized smoke shop. 
Post was a former radio broadcaster who served in the Oregon Legislature from 2015 to 2021. He resigned his legislature seat when he moved to Fallon where his wife Colleen currently works as a teacher. He also ran unsuccessfully as a board trustee for the Churchill County School District in the 2022 election.

While there is no smoking in the building, cigar customers can enjoy their stogies just across the hallway on a second-story balcony off the rear of the building. In keeping with the Prohibition-era theme, cigar customers will be able to purchase drinks from the adjacent Cranberry Cottage shop on their special Speakeasy nights to be delivered up to the smoking deck.

“I think we’re going to have success because it’s unique," said Post.

Check out Maine Street Cigar Company at 131 S. Maine Street, Suite 201 in the Historic Churchill Bank Building, Downtown Fallon, or call 775-302-8773. Hours of operation are Wednesday-Saturday 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday-Tuesday they are closed.

One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
