As part of the Star Store initiative, Healthy Aroostook is working with retailers to decrease tobacco-related advertising and underage sales of all tobacco-related products.
Star Store is a voluntary program created for retailers to encourage the responsible retailing of tobacco products. In combination with NO BUTS! it helps promote best retailing practices by decreasing the exposure of tobacco messages, advertising, and promotions to youth by reducing or eliminating the visibility of tobacco marketing to kids that leads to tobacco use.
Retailers who would like to learn more about the benefits of gaining Star Store Status can contact Healthy Aroostook for more information.
