Sadly Sieverts in Halifax, one of the only brick and mortar pipe tobacco shops in Nova Scotia is closing. Staff were always friendly and knowledgeable about pipe smoking. I even took a flea market pipe to them, when I couldn't get any draw out of it and they fixed it at no charge.

That's a real hardship with all the customs and taxes for online orders from outside Canada, not to mention the community of a good pipe shop, and the information available there. I feel the weight of that as my local independent pipe shop hangs on. These places are irreplaceable. You can't replace the in-house shop memory and knowhow.

I know a member on the forums living in Halifax's area that will be devastated.

I visited Sievert's in 2009 and it was generously supplied.

Returned in 2012 and the change (for the worse) was dramatic.

So, this was, unfortunately, predictable.
