Schofield Grocer Discontinues Tobacco Product Sales

By  | 

The Central Wisconsin Tobacco Free Coalition is praising a Schofield grocery store for its announcement that it will no longer sell tobacco products.

In a news release, the Central Wisconsin Tobacco Free Coalition states as of April 20, the Quality Foods IGA in Schofield became tobacco-free.

“We are really excited that the IGA in Schofield is helping to make sure another generation does not get hooked on tobacco,” stated Destinee Coenen in the release. “This is really important since we know tobacco products are heavily marketed to youth- 90% of smokers begin smoking before the age of 18.”

Quality Foods IGA Schofield said on their Facebook page, “We care greatly about our customer’s needs and the needs of our community. It is because of this that we want to fully support the Tobacco-Free Kids Campaign and join the many other companies such as Whole Foods and CVS who are trying to positively influence our future generations.”
