David Carmack's vision was to own and operate a cigar shop creating a wonderful atmosphere where folks can come together and buy cigars and pipes and enjoy the company of friends and acquaintances in his shop. His vision became reality as he and his son, Jeff opened Carmack's Cigar Shop in 1998. Throughout his 14 years in the shop, he and his son grew the shop to be one of the best cigar shops in Indiana filled with a wonderful customer base which enjoyed a wide variety of premium cigars as well as attending many cigar events sponsored by the shop. His attention to detail in running the business with high standards coupled with his genuine compassion and kindness towards all customers made Carmack's a landmark business in the cigar industry.

24 years ago.(4-1-98) I’m standing in the exact spot, where my father helped me start my first cigar shop. This was our view from our first shop in the Hyatt Regency Hotel downtown Indianapolis. Taking this picture was bitter-sweet for me. Wish my old man could've been standing there with me. #cigarsandfamily,#cigarsandfriends,#hyattregencyindianapolis

4 years ago today, I got the 1am call from the hospital that you never want to get. His birthday was the 4th and his passing on the 9th, makes it a tough week for those who loved you. All the alcohol in the world doesn't numb the pain. I thought it would get easier, but it only gets harder. I miss my best friend,and I love you very much. Please watch over us. I'm in TN where we took our last trip.
