Tobacco products in

Dark Market

Tightened legal situation

The times when people smoked in thrillers, movies or TV shows are long gone. And at the point of sale, too, laws in many countries ensure that tobacco products can no longer be seen. This is referred to as a "dark market".

England, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands are just a few example countries where a dark market law change has already been initiated. And the truth is grim - Dark Market is coming. So be ready before it starts.

The "Dark Market" compliant placement

Does the display ban on tobacco products apply in your store, i.e. the ban on visibly presenting tobacco products? This so-called dark market presents you with completely new challenges regarding the placement of your products at the point of sale? You are probably wondering how to make the existing placement “dark market compliant”. Or how you create new placement opportunities?

Especially when the customer can no longer be “lured” with an open presentation of the products, service plays an even greater role. The customer must therefore be served quickly with his desired product. This means that a Dark Market compliant placement must absolutely guarantee optimal orientation and quick access for the store employee. Another challenge is that the products are always available in sufficient quantities. Thus, new stocking solutions need to be created at the point of sale. But you do not have to worry!

We have answers to your questions. Take a look at our brochure or catalog to see our intelligent solutions for the placement and stocking of tobacco products at the point of sale in the dark market. We, as a long-time specialist for the Point of Sale, have intelligent solutions for you.
