AB SUPPLIES THE IDEAL NEEDS FOR SPECIAL OCCASIONS. CHOCOLATE FOR MOM; CHARCOAL FOR DAD.

It’s Mother’s Day! Our store owners are saying one of two things; “I am so glad I called Allen Brothers” or “I should have called Allen Brothers”.  Every husband, father, brother, son, and/or friend of a “mom” is running rampant trying to find a last-minute gift. What does every woman want? CHOCOLATE.  Stocking up on a large variety of chocolate was a good plan for this weekend.

The customers of your stores are saying the same thing as you: “My corner store sure does stock everything I need” or quite the opposite.

As a gift, the new Kit Kat Mini’s® from Hershey® are a great choice. Throw a little story behind it; Kit Kat® now has children of her own.  Kit Kat® Mommy is so nice, sweet, and smart for adding the subtle crisp of the wafers that she decided it was time to extend her family and make Mini’s.  Why not create little one’s that you can get that luxurious taste of chocolate in one BITE?”

On a serious note, Memorial Day weekend is coming up next. Make sure you are prepared with all of the last-minute things your customers will need. Make a check list starting with: Charcoal, Lighter Fluid, Paper Goods, BBQ Sauce, etc.

Check your MAY COMMON SENSE FLYER, it’s all on special!!! Sale ends May 31st.

AB Alert: Implementation of Graphic Warning Labels on Cigarettes Blocked by Federal Judge

Graphic Images Halted on Cigarette Packs and Ads

Big news coming out of Washington, D.C. today, where U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon granted a request by five tobacco companies seeking to postpone the September 22nd, 2012, deadline for implementation of graphic warning labels on cigarettes packages, cartons, and advertisements. Special thanks to the fine people at AWMA & CSP Daily News for publicizing the story!

While the long term implications of today’s legislation are still undetermined, here’s what we currently know. Judge Leon’s ruling lays out a preliminary injunction barring the implementation of these graphic labels. This is certainly no guarantee that these labels won’t still be enforced, but it’s an indication that the tobacco companies listed below may win their claim that the warnings violate freedom of speech, a right guaranteed by our First Amendment.

In case you are unaware of what Judge Leon is reversing, we’ll quickly review. This past June the FDA unveiled a marketing campaign designed to repel potential tobacco-buying customers with graphic colored images of a diseased lung, a disfigured mouth, a weeping woman, and a smoker exhaling through a tracheotomy hole, to name a few. These images were to be positioned to dominate a half of the front and back of each carton, and 20 percent of most ads.

The five tobacco companies who fought the initial ruling are listed below:
1.) Lorrilard
2.) R.J Reynolds Tobacco Co.
3.) Commonwealth Brands Inc.
4.) Liggett Group LLC
5.) Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Co.

Allen Brothers will continue to follow this story and keep you informed of any updates.
