The World's Unsexiest Business
adding a little sizzle to the convenience store industry
Any c-store owners get caught up in a demand frenzied short stocked situation with Dunhill cigarettes? The unofficial word is a huge shipment from Dunhill manufacturing HQ got seized at a stateside port. An unconfirmed rumor further asserts that some illegal drugs had been randomly placed into Dunhill branded empty boxes and cartons. Whether it was DEA or another local drug enforcement agency ordering the seizure, it doesn't matter. I'm speculating another contraband shipment was able to make its way through while this lower value target had been given the all hands on deck scrutiny.
Government attention resource allocation aside, the scarcity has caused demand to surge in the Southern California market along with 'fever pitch' price levels for each pack. Some of our associates recently saw the 'Black' packs selling for as much as $20 each.
