DEERFIELD, Ill., March 05, 2019 - We welcome the opportunity to meet with the Commissioner of Food and Drugs to discuss all of the steps we are taking regarding this important issue.  We have a zero tolerance policy prohibiting the sale of tobacco products to minors and any employee violating this policy is subject to immediate termination.  We require age verification from anyone purchasing these products, regardless of age, in all of our stores nationwide. While lowering the visibility of tobacco products in certain stores, we also continue to focus efforts on promoting cessation products and services, and all of our pharmacists and technicians are trained and certified on supporting any customer wanting to quit on their terms.
