Scrap the ban
The thought of losing my local, relaible independent shop seems completely un-justified and unnecessary and after reading through some of The Retailers comments on this site it only re-inforces my view. Its is people's livelihoods at threat here and communities are formed around local shops!!!!
Cigarettes are still a completely legal product and surely by putting them 'under the counter' it will only make them more taboo?!
I like being able to pop to make local shop and like my freedom of choice and don't think that in this day and age that should be taken away.
Why does this idea matter?
So that people ahve freedom of choice and others don't lose their livelihoods!!!!!
