Who we are?

We are retailers, just like you, who sell tobacco products from newsagents and small convenience stores.

What do we do?

We’re here to give you expert advice and guidance on tobacco retailing issues such as the display ban and plain packaging.

Why do we do it?

Because the voice of tobacco retailers needs to be heard. We are on your side and want to help you make a difference.

Want to get involved?

Tobacco sales account for around a third of sales in convenience stores that act as the focal point and heart of many communities both rural and urban.

Why not join with other retailers who, like you, sell tobacco products responsibly but find their businesses under threat from poor legislation like the display ban, plain packaging and the European Tobacco Products Directive?
