The Ontario Convenience Stores Association is conducting a survey to gather information to share with the Ontario Government in an effort to find solutions to illegal cigarettes, while understanding the importance of the tobacco business for convenience stores.
Independent, chain and franchise operators are invited to participate in a survey and share their experiences and thoughts.
“If you are concerned about contraband and what it is doing to your revenue and traffic, then here is a great opportune to weigh in as a small business owner,” says OCSA president & CEO Dave Bryans. He will be sharing the information with the Tobacco Project Team, which is making a report to the Minister of Finance in August. “The government wants to hear from the convenience sector themselves, small business owners and how it effects them.”
