Retailers selling tobacco today are facing an ever changing environment with new product offerings and legislative directives on national state and local levels. Right-sizing and staying up to date to maintain compliance can be a daunting task. Many retailers are searching for ways to merchandise and showcase these products and changes in a timely and efficient manner.
That’s where we at Proxy Retail come in. We specialize in tobacco fixture installations and merchandising programs that improve the tobacco category presence and increase sales. We are the only certified installers for the two top tobacco fixture manufacturers, Harbor Industries and ImageWorks.
Our management team has literal decades of experience in tobacco installation and merchandising going as far back as the signing of the Master Settlement Agreement in 1998. We also have dedicated highly trained installation and merchandising teams that only focus on the tobacco category.
This experience and dedication make for efficient results with fewer issues, calls and failed attempts and an overall lower cost. In the end it creates an attractive category that appeals to your adult tobacco consumer.
Our expertise focuses on project planning and execution with hands-on training in the field to ensure your stores are up to date and in compliance to maximize your profits. With that, our goal is to keep your stores on brand and product visibility to the adult consumer.
Tobacco is one of the most difficult and challenging categories to manage. It is not as simple as installing fixtures and following planograms. Intimate knowledge of how the fixtures and signage install and the subtle difference in the products is key! Our clients recognize this, and it is why a large part of our growth comes from referrals.
