Victorian & South Australian Stores
As most stores would be aware by now our State Franchise Manager, Tammy, is about to go on maternity leave!
During this period, our 2 other Victorian team members, Alex & Ian, will take over the visits to Tammy’s outlets. This will be a combination of in store visits or via the phone. Head office staff are also here to help where needed.
The team at TSG wish Tammy all the best with the upcoming new addition to her family and may the journey into motherhood be full of joy.
With the new Imperial trading terms all 3 major tobacco manufacturers now require outside purchase invoices if your scan vs. purchase variance is more than +/- 10%.
If no outside evidence is presented, you will be forfeiting share payment dollars.
With the new Imperial terms there are monthly and quarterly targets therefore evidence will be needed monthly. Please forward any outside purchase invoices to [email protected]

Under price lists you will find proposed price list from BAT commencing 9th January. This includes price changes across the combustibles portfolio and revised accessories price list including a number of COGS reductions. If any changes are made after the 23rd of December TSG will not be able to communicate this information via email due to the office being closed. However, pricing will still be downloaded to stores ready to go for the 9th of January. We recommend you continue to check the BAT site for any updates after the 23rd of December.
And of course, this means BATA will begin monitoring store level purchase volumes and may enact Stock Management Plans on a store-by-store basis. These Stock Management Plans will be implemented within 24 hours if purchases are deemed above regular patterns to ensure continuity of supply to consumers. If a site exceed their stock management plan limits, BATA at its absolute discretion may cease supply or review historical purchases and apply a minimal uplift to ensure genuine consumer sales are not impacted.
The 1 P
Promotions – BAT have extended some existing promotions. These are highlighted in a delightful soft blue on the promotional sheet.
