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.

Everything in view even in the dark ?

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? I’m sure you’re wonde­ring how to make exis­ting place­ment “dark market compli­ant” or how to 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.
