2021's New Rules: Know the Laws
Wednesday, January 27, 2021
We all look forward to a better 2021 after the trials and tribulations of 2020. Hope for a new year is a positive way to achieve success. But hope only goes so far. Arming owners and employees with knowledge of the changing local and national regulations and restrictions related to the sale of age-restricted products is the best way to make 2021 better. To keep this new knowledge top of mind, The BARS Program encourages a BARS Checker visit each month for convenience, grocery and liquor stores.
Following this cadence of mock purchases not only fosters familiarization of laws among employees, but helps to decrease the likelihood of your business failing a government-backed sting, as well. After all, the nationwide Tobacco 21, alcohol home delivery in Ohio1, the official end to Prohibition in Mississippi2 and Illinois’ state lawmakers pending legislation to set standards for home deliveries of alcohol3 didn’t happen overnight, and your employees won’t retain procedures associated with these new laws in one training session either.
Let The BARS Program act as insurance for your brand, no matter the time of year. Losing your license to sell age-sensitive products could mean losing loyal customers, time and money. Contact The BARS Program at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-877-540-5500, to learn more.
