With a population of nearly ten million, smokers aged 21 and over in Michigan pay an average of $ 7.67 per pack of tobacco cigarettes, which is higher than the national average retail price per pack.1. By introducing TAAT ™ to Michigan through an established tobacco retailer with a statewide presence, the company is able to gain greater visibility into performance metrics such as replenishment rates. by region. Stores that sell TAAT ™ in Michigan currently include locations in the Upper peninsula region, where the percentage of adults who smoke cigarettes has historically been higher than the overall state average2.
TAAT ™ CEO Setti Coscarella said: “Retail chains are an important part of distribution strategies in the tobacco category for a number of reasons. It’s not just about how many stores your product line can fit into, it’s also because running a chain can effectively facilitate in-store merchandising standards and activation tactics. When a smoker aged 21 and over walks into a tobacco shop, they tend to already know which brand of tobacco cigarettes they want to buy. Our goal is to get them to buy TAAT ™ instead, although this conversion is something that happens at the store level in seconds, and must be planned meticulously to be successful. While we have been successful in creating in-store activation protocols for independent tobacco retailers, this tends to be much easier to do with retail chains that already have the infrastructure to institute and oversee these types of procedures. in each of their stores. We are delighted to have made such a rapid entry into the State of Michigan, where we aim to promote TAAT ™ as a better alternative to tobacco cigarettes.
