Only one of 28 retailers fails WI WINS tobacco compliance check in Sheboygan

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (CBS 58) -- A WI WINS tobacco compliance check was done at 28 local retailers in Sheboygan.

During the checks, only one retailer sold tobacco products to a juvenile.

This marks a 96% compliance rate and a positive success rate compared to past checks.

The Sheboygan Police Department has addressed the violation and provided guidance and training to the retailer who was not in compliance.

WI WINS program is coordinated and supervised by the Northeastern WI Area Health Education Center, using volunteer juveniles to purchase or attempt to purchase tobacco at retail shops. They spot check retailers, that sell tobacco, several times a year to measure how they are complying with Wisconsin statutes regarding the sale of tobacco products to minors.
