Remove tobacco advertising from Stewart's Shops 1 signatures
President Dake, Behind every Stewart's Shop's checkout is a wall of tobacco products toppped with advertising posters. Some signs extend from the rack's ends in very prominant positions. Since current tobacco users know what they want without an ad, these posters are designed to entice new users to the nicotine habit. By posting these ads, the Stewart's Shops are promoting a public health hazard and participating in the recruitment of young people to a life-long vice. President Dake, you tell us this about your company: "Being privately held allows us to make rational, long-term decisions." Make the rational decision here, one that will have great long-term positive results for over 300 small communities throughout your region. Respectfully, we request that all tobacco product advertising be removed from your stores. Stewart's Shops will then truly "be closer to us."
