Stores Reach Agreement To Cut Cigarettes Sales To Minors

Illinois joined 38 other states on Tuesday to announce an agreement with Circle K Stores and Mac’s Convenience Stores to prevent the sale of cigarettes to children and teens.

The agreement will impose compliance checks and increase training for the companies’ 4,000 convenience stores nationwide, including more than 250 locations in Illinois, all of which sell discount cigarettes products, a release from the attorney general’s office said.

Circle K, Dairymart and On the Run stores now will comprehensively train retail personnel and conduct independent compliance checks to monitor sales.

The agreement comes as part of attorneys generals’ ongoing, multistate enforcement effort and incorporates methods to prevent underage cheap cigarettes access developed by the group, public health experts and cheap cigarettes control officials.

As part of the agreement, Circle K must check IDs of those who appear to be younger than 30 and in-store cigarettes online ads must be limited to reduce the effect on young people. Outdoor advertising must be eliminated at stores within 500 feet of playgrounds or schools, the release said.

Circle K will also test itself on the effectiveness of its safeguards against underage sales by conducting “mystery shopper” compliance checks at 500 stores every six months.

The company also agreed to pay the attorneys general $225,000 to be used for consumer education, public protection or programs protecting against buy cigarettes use by minors.
