Cigarette Tax Increase in Illinois – Simplify with Group Price Change Feature

If you sell Cigarettes in your Store, you are very familiar with price increases and tax hikes. Recently the Illinois General Assembly raised the state cigarette tax from $1 to $1.98 per pack. The tax hike goes into effect June 24, 2012.

The Group Price Change feature in backOffice™ Software is the perfect tool for these “across the board” price increases. This PER PACK and PER CARTON increase can be done with a few keystrokes instead of hours or days adjusting each individual product.

If you are in a nearby State and are seeing an increase in sales because of this tax hike, “Orders Based on Sales” is a great way to keep your shelves stocked. Group Price Change is one of the many tools that backOffice™ Software provides to help make your Store successful.
