Sturk's Tobacconists


Hi, do you stock Amber Leaf tobacco, or Drum? (RYO)
Good morning. I know your Greenmarket Square branch is closed, so I phoned your Gardens branch to order Horseshoe tobacco to collect on Saturday. Can you please let me know what the current price is once you've ordered!
now that you can trade again, do you sell online ? I am interested in pipes and sigarette rolling equipment.
the saddest news today. my best tobacco ever purchased, worldwide... great service, thank you uncle Abe.... and that lovely young girl who always had a smile.....I am sure you will revive, soon, very soon after this crazy ruling comes to an end.
Morning all. Quite a summer's day in Cape Town. Fresh tobaccos in and some great pipes too. Come have a look see
Does this beautiful store sell clay churchwardens?
Hi! when will your website be up and running?
Why whenever I call or go to your store there is never rolling tobacco like your cherry shag I've been calling and going in for myself girlfriend and friend it's been 3 months and never any of the times have you had what's up with this guys

The oldest tobacconist in South Africa. We offer our hand blended mixes for the discerning pipe smoker and a vast range of pipes and requisites.

Our humidor is filled with the finest Cubans. Do pop in. Theo and Nicola will be happy to assist Hand Blenders of Individual Smoking Mixtures and Stockists of Cigars and all Smokers Requisites.

[09/04/20]   It’s now Furious Friday. Tobaccos are arriving Tuesday. I have no idea why this constant change of delivery but with all my indignation and anger, I cannot get the tobacco here before Tuesday - even offered to fly up and collect it myself. Sorry guys. Watch this space

To make things a little easier, we will pre-pack cigarette rolling tobaccos for easy purchase at Casa Tabacs as well as the most popular Sturks pipe blends. All orders will be fulfilled as timeously as humanly possible. Have a wonderful weekend and stay safe

[08/27/20]   Good morning Sturks supporters. I know you are very frustrated, as am I, but the tobaccos will definitely be arriving next week. I have no idea why this is dragging but the excuse is backlog. Please keep,sending orders and they will be seen to immediately upon arrival of the tobacco. Theo and I will be blending, even if we have to at night.

[08/15/20]   Hi once again. Sturks of Shortmarket Street is no longer in existence. The brand is alive and a new store will reopen in the future. For now, sister store Casa Tabacs will service Sturks clients too. For the near future it will be a little different but we will strive to give you the best possible service and make your purchases easy and timely. We will mix our blends but will prepare off site and collection will be from Casa Tabacs. Any queries and/or orders, do not hesitate to contact me:

[08/15/20]   Finally! Cyril has come to his senses. Casa Tabacs will be servicing all Sturks customers. Cigarettes and most tobaccos will be available from Tuesday. Sturks tobacco blends and cigarette flavors will only be available in about another week. Our tobaccos are shipped from the Northern Cape and then we have to blend. Watch this space. We will not let you down.

[06/27/20]   Good morning from a cold and stormy Cape Town. While the weather rages and wreaks havoc, I'm raging too at the injustice of our corrupt government, a government that is wreaking extreme and irreparable damage to our country and its citizens. Businesses are closing, people have no money to feed their families but, the informal (DZ doesn't use the word illicit or illegal, heaven forbid) traders are making a living!!!!!!! At whose expense???? The mind boggles. Watch this space.

[06/16/20]   Good morning. Public holiday but I am open at Casa Tabacs, upper level, Garden Shopping Centre, Mill Street from 9 till 2

[06/15/20]   Good morning from chilly Cape Town. I will be interviewed this evening at 5.40, Jacaranda FM and look forward to answering questions to clear up any and all misunderstandings re the shop being vacated in Green market Square. Keep safe. Keep warm

[06/08/20]   A kindly gentleman contacted me re go fund me, for which I thanked him, but declined his kind and generous offer. However, he spoke of setting up a page and/or online platform. Please contact me. I am unable to find your details. I need to ask a technical question. Thank you. Diane 0828877842
