Retail display is the visible presence of tobacco products and accessories at the point of sale. The tobacco industry uses powerwalls, countertop displays, signage and brand-name accessories like lighters to communicate with current, former and potential smokers. The impact of these displays, especially on children, is similar to that of conventional advertising . Retail displays are associated with adolescent smoking initiation . They also encourage relapse among quitters and increased consumption among smokers . In 2007, the tobacco industry paid Canadian retailers $76,217,186 for displaying tobacco products and signs.
