Convenience stores sell some of the most contentious products – tobacco, vape, lottery, alcohol, beer and fast “junk” foods – most categories that require age-verification before purchase. Most categories that are taxed extensively by provincial and federal categories. Even more stressful, most categories that have their own set of regulations at the provincial and federal level. There is no “one” approach to selling many of these products because different regulations may apply.
