COVID-19 Information


“Patience must become the virtue of all of us” said PM Scott Morrison in Q&A this afternoon indicating that changes and restrictions will have to remain in place for some time.  

I have to say that I am truly impressed how our network has acted proactively and independently to implement necessary precautions and to comply with ongoing changes in regulations. On behalf of the entire team I would also like to thank everyone who has shared with us their best practices which we keep adding on our website so please make sure to re-visit pages for updated content.

While we are waiting today to get clarification regarding the announced moratorium on commercial and private leases, I would like to clarify; the only information officially announced is:  “Evictions will be put on hold for 6 months by the states and territories. Landlords and renters are encouraged to talk about short term agreements. More information to come this week.” This is not a reason to fail to pay rent but is an assurance for those not in a position to meet their obligations that they cannot be evicted. In an earlier update we have provided you a template letter for commercial tenants to address to their landlords, accessible in the FAQs section of our website.

Tobacco performance in March for TSG was the strongest month yet in 2020 with a growth in excess of 10% in comparison to February 2020 and 5% in comparison to January.

Stay healthy!

The caps on the current promotions for LB 30 and PJC 30 that are running this month have been tripled.
These changes will also be amended in the PML portal.

From next week, 6th April, PML will increase the case deal on Bond Street 40’s in A & B grade stores from $11.12 to $23.12. 
This will run for 3 weeks until the 26th of April.  The increased case deal will be paid on deferred scan and is capped at 40 ctns a week for the deferred component.

PML have notified TSG that any stores that ordered Wednesday 1st April, did not receive off invoice payments.  This issue is now fixed and back payment has been raised.


Distribution around the country has remained stable over the last week.

·       NSW, VIC, SA, TAS & QLD Metro have seen no issues and supply to the trade remains unchanged.

·       FNQ has gone to 48hrs delivery with no issues seen on the first shipment this week.

·       NT continues to have flights delayed or cancelled and Imperial will be working with the Saleslink team to transition these accounts to a 48hr service to ensure delivery timelines are achieved.


Updated promotions commencing 6th April can be found on the website. 

Decrease in case deals for Holiday 20s & Pall Mall 20s. Promotions on selected brands continue.


April pricing and promotions can be found on the TSG website.

We’re delighted to share images from the Brisbane Cobra’s women’s 45s team, who finished on top of the table. Sadly, they went down 3-1 in the Grand Final against a hungry Sydney side. Hopefully next year they’ll bring back the trophy! I’m sure you’ll agree, they look terrific in their TSG training shirts!
