YORKTOWN, N.Y. – Rock’s Smoke Shop, a store offering tobacco and tobacco-related products, has opened on Commerce Street.
The store is owned by Rock Liu, a New York City resident. Liu, a former restaurant owner, left that business about a decade ago to open up a smoke shop in Newburgh, he said.
Liu said he became interested in the 1925 Commerce St. storefront, located in between China Star and O’Grady’s Public House, a few years ago while driving through town. When he noticed the previous tenant, Iconic Hair, closed last year, he decided it was time to open a second smoke shop.
The shop sells just about anything tobacco-related, including cigars, electronic cigarettes and bongs. It is open from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It is closed Sunday.
