Skoal/Copenhagen Promotion..after March 28th..C-store update: Philip Morris $1.00 off promotion Skoal and Copenhagen... Although it is increasing prices on its cigarettes, Altria also plans to cut prices for Copenhagen and Skoal, the smokeless tobacco brands it acquired through its purchase of UST Inc. by 62 cents per tin, according to reports. Dow Jones reported Altria had been widely expected to cut some smokeless tobacco prices as UST's premium brands faced tough competition from cheaper competing products before the acquisition. Altria - Philip Morris to raise cigarette prices (as of March 9, 2009)..) We wonder if the current $1.00 promotion will end March 28th as planned or will it continue in addition to the 62 cents cut in price.

Camel SNUS -Latest c-store owner comment - this store is close to a community college. At one time a few cans of Camel SNUS did sell - just about all to students. Now the fellow tells us it hardly sells and the fellow just waits to get free cans from the Reynolds' salesperson.
