How to Sell Tobacco Products Responsibly

Concerned consumers have made sales of sensitive items like tobacco products increasingly challenging, but LA Top Distributors can help retailers sell these items responsibly

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Managing a small business is always a challenge, so it's only natural for enterprising owners of facilities like convenience stores, car washes, gas stations and other retailers to do everything they can to match customers with the items they want most. Often, these include consistently popular convenience store items like energy drinks, batteries, and tobacco products offered at LA Top Distributors. Yet, for retailers that sell these items, it's important for entrepreneurs and retail managers to understand that, these days, consumers are increasingly concerned with ethical practices from the companies they do business with.

In Entrepreneur, contributor Jesse Torres recently wrote that today's consumer "is someone who expects more than just a product or service. He or she expects businesses to reinvest in the communities where they have earned a profit." Similarly, the publication Convenience Store Decisions reported that a Technomic study found customers are more likely to visit a food or service business that they see as socially conscious. Fortunately, the experienced wholesale cigars distributors at LA Top Distributor have been in the business of providing retailers with the products most requested by consumers since 1995, and they're able to provide expert wisdom to managers looking to build a positive image in their communities.

Cigars, cigarettes, and other tobacco products are always big sellers at convenience stores, but it's no secret that they are also controversial items that should only be sold to adults. Some steps you can take to ensure tobacco products are sold with the utmost sensitivity are as follows:

  • Gear Advertising toward Adults – These days, there are many rules and regulations regarding advertising for tobacco products. Since responsible convenience store owners never look to sell to minors anyway, it's wise to be extra careful when it comes to ads for tobacco. Simply put, quality tobacco products essentially sell themselves, and your customers will appreciate your intelligence and sensitivity in avoiding the sort of ads that appeal to children.
  • Always Sell Tobacco Over the Counter – Regulations differ from state to state but keeping tobacco behind the counter is always a good idea. It keeps it out of reach of children, while also making tobacco sales to adults as efficient as possible. Products can even be prominently placed behind the counter in such a way that makes them easily visible to adults while far from the eyes of children.  
  • Consult Experienced Professionals – If you still have questions about how to best sell tobacco products, certain energy drinks, or other products that may require a delicate touch, don't hesitate to contact the team at LA Top Distributors. They are dedicated to providing optimal service for their customers, and they understand that helping their customers sell their products as responsibly as possible is in everybody's best interest. Not only will tobacco aficionados be grateful that your company provides the products they love, they'll appreciate your sensitivity and intelligence in keeping products that are meant for adults out of the reach of children.
