Stop Displaying Alcohol Close To Checkouts In Our Local Store: Centra, Cork

Please, will you stop placing alcohol so close to the checkout. I want my local Centra to stop placing profits ahead of our children health, which is at risk from exposure to alcohol marketing.

Why is this important?

Alcohol marketers direct advertising at them with the aim of gaining lifelong loyal customers. These companies are well known as the best and most effective advertisers in the world. Why is it that children cannot enter dedicated off-licenses but convenience stores like these are free to place their alcohol sections so that children cannot avoid them?

Centra has over 450 branches in Ireland and have recently become part of the huge Musgrave group. If they find this layout to be profitable they may well decide to implement it in all their stores.
