A new retail store in Sturgeon Bay with a long history of handcrafted imports from around the world opened this past weekend in Sturgeon Bay. A Touch of the World is a retail shop with a history of 47 years. Owner Marty Biebel first brought back treasures from the Himalayan Mountains after climbing Mount Everest in 1975. He shares some of the unique items he has brought back from Southeast Asia over his yearly visits.
Biebel recently closed the Fish Creek business location after 27 years and simultaneously operated seven stores in the Green Bay, Appleton and Wausau areas before that. He hopes visitors and customers will appreciate the different cultures that are reflected in his one-of-a-kind inventory. Touch of the World is located at 823 Egg Harbor Road and is open daily from 9 am until 9 pm.
