Abstract

BackgroundThe objectives of this study were to document retailer opinions about tobacco control policy at the point of sale POS and link these opinions with store level compliance with sales and marketing provisions of the Tobacco Control Act.

MethodsThis study conducted interviews of 252 tobacco retailers in three counties in North Carolina and linked their opinions with in-person observational audit data of their stores’ compliance with POS policies. We conducted analyses examining retailer factors associated with noncompliance using Generalized Estimating Equations GEE controlling for individual, store, neighborhood, and county factors.

ResultsOver 90 % of retailers support minors’ access provisions and a large minority over 40 % support graphic warnings and promotion bans. Low levels of support were found for a potential ban on menthol cigarettes 17 %. Store noncompliance with tobacco control policies was associated with both more reported retailer barriers to compliance and less support for POS policies. Awareness of and source of information about tobacco control regulations were not associated with compliance when accounting for neighborhood and county characteristics.

ConclusionsRetailers expressed some support for a wide range of POS policies. Advocates and government agencies tasked with enforcement can work with retailers as stakeholders to enhance support, mitigate barriers, and promote compliance with tobacco control efforts at the point of sale.
