Cigarette Gantry’s and the existing tobacco regulations


As the new tobacco regulations have now been in force for several months most retailers will be fully aware of the changes to the way we display cigarettes and tobacco.  For those shop owners new to the retail trade at Shopfitting Supplies we can answer all your questions and guide you to the right cigarette gantry or cigarette display cupboard.

Points to consider

  • All tobacco, cigarettes and cigars cannot be displayed in an open cupboard

  • You do not have to remove the tobacco products just enclose them within a cigarette gantry complete with closing sliding doors (referred to as going dark)

  • When selling to a customer always check that the person is over 18 years of age before opening your cigarette display cupboard or gantry

  • You may open the cigarette gantry whilst serving your customer, then close immediately after.

Choosing the right cigarette gantry / cigarette storage cupboard

At Shopfitting Supplies we can supply the cigarette gantry to suit your exact requirements whether floor standing with a base cupboard, wall mounted or to sit on your wall shelving we have the unit to match your needs.  If you already have slatwall boards and shop shelving we can match your cigarette gantry to all your existing fixtures. If not we would be happy to quote for any shop fittings you may need.  All our display cabinets are manufactured to a high standard in the UK and available in a range of colours and wood finishes complementing your existing colour scheme.  We pride ourselves at offering fantastic quality at affordable prices.

Home clothes storage

Why not de clutter your wardrobes and free that space!  You will be surprised how much more organised your life will become.  All those clothes you never wear yet can’t bear to part with why not invest in a dress rail for your spare room or garage and store them away!   We have all been accused of taking up far too much space in the wardrobe leaving none for our partners….


There’s no room, there’s no space

An angry stare upon his face

Oh husband dear you know the score

There’s plenty of room left on the floor

The wardrobe doors will barely shut

My rooms a mess I’m in a rut

I search the web to my surprise

The answer to my problem lies

A dress rail that is very strong

Sizes 4 to 6 feet long

My rail arrives next working day

A low cost rail, not much to pay

Shopfitting Supplies, what can I say

Thank you so much! You’ve saved the day


Thank you for reading my blog
