Salling Group Sees Lower Tobacco Sales To Youths Following Netto Move
Denmark's Salling Group has said that tobacco has been removed from visible sale in all of its 500 Netto stores across the country, with the net result that fewer young people are now buying cigarettes.
Earlier this summer, Salling Group said that it planned to ensure all tobacco products were 'hidden away' in its stores by the start of October, a process that has already been completed at its Netto outlets.
The move followed research that indicates the number of youths between 13 and 17 years old that have taken up smoking rose in Denmark in the past five years.
