Retail display refers to the visible presence of tobacco products and accessories at the point of sale. The tobacco industry uses powerwalls, countertop displays, signage and product accessories like brand-name lighters to communicate with customers. The impact of retail displays is similar to that of conventional advertising. This update reviews retail display bans and restrictions in Canadian provinces and territories, and notes that bans and various restrictions on the retail display of tobacco products are in effect in other international jurisdictions. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control recommends a complete ban on all forms of direct and indirect tobacco advertising.
