FROM:             Rebecca Houseman, City Manager

RE:                   Thank you Fort Atkinson Businesses for not selling tobacco to those under 21

Fort Atkinson retailers proved they do the right thing by not selling tobacco products to individuals under the age of 21.

The following retailers in the City of Fort Atkinson proved they check ID’s when selling tobacco products after a Wisconsin WINS compliance check: X Treme Smoke, Kwik Trip, Pick N Save, Stop N’ Go, KP Mart, Tobacco Land, Loeder BP, Walgreen’s, Fat Boyz, Family Dollar #26250, Citgo Handy Pantry, Sunny’s Quick Mart, Citgo on the Point, Shell Handy Pantry and Festival Foods.

Thank you to all the retailers who are keeping tobacco products out the hands of the City’s youth.

The American Lung Association and the Wisconsin WINS Recognition and Reminder strategy is a science-based approach that reduces youth access to tobacco products.  We encourage and applaud merchants who refuse to sell tobacco to persons under the age of 21 years.  For more information about Wisconsin WINS go to www.wiwins.org
