[January 30, 2013]  Tobacco retailers in Lincoln were inspected for the second of three rounds of compliance checks to be conducted on all tobacco retailers within the community. A total of 15 tobacco retailers were inspected, and one was 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 state and local minimum-age tobacco laws that prohibit the sale of tobacco to individuals 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 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 city thanks the retailers listed below for passing the tobacco compliance test:

  • Discount Tobacco, 501 Woodlawn

  • CVS, 532 Woodlawn

  • Walgreens, 603 Woodlawn

  • Ayerco, 705 Woodlawn

  • Kroger, 1475 Woodlawn

  • Wal-Mart, 825 Malerich Drive

  • Thorntons Travel Plaza, 2897 Woodlawn

  • 5th Street Food Mart, 1302 Fifth St.

  • Casey's, 1100 Fifth St.

  • Lincoln IGA, 713 Pulaski

  • Apollo Mart, 725 Broadway

  • Thorntons, 511 Keokuk
