OREGON (WIFR) -- Tobacco retailers were inspected during the most recent round of compliance checks to be conducted on all tobacco retailers within the community. A total of eight tobacco retailers were inspected and none were found to be in violation of the law by selling tobacco to a minor.
The compliance checks are performed to determine if local tobacco retailers are complying with the state of IL minimum-age tobacco laws which prohibit the sale of tobacco to persons under the age of 18. With the help from a grant awarded by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission’s “Kids Can’t Buy ‘Em Here” Tobacco Enforcement Program, the City of Oregon educates local tobacco retailers on minimum-age tobacco laws and the importance of verifying the age of customers before selling age-restrictive products such as tobacco.
The following is a list of all retailers that did not violate the tobacco laws:
Rock River Mart
Sam’s Whole Sale Tobacco
Mini Mart Liquors
