24 stores will win a share of $81,000 of TSG Online Shop Vouchers!!

We have a 6 week exclusive PML share incentive in 2 categories – TMC & RYO – running from Monday 16th November until Sunday 27th December.

Your base will be your PML TMC & RYO share during the period 21st September to 1st November. This information has been emailed to participating stores.

The 12 stores that achieve the highest PML TMC share increase and the 12 stores that achieve the highest PML RYO share increase will share in the spoils.

Further details can be found under promotions.

On Monday 16th November a couple of changes to Choice Signature 25s and Bond Street Classic 30s. Both now having some state specific pricing that will have a deferred scan component.

New information can be found under promotions.

Digital Task 4 finishes this Sunday 15th November. Don’t forget to complete if you have not already done so.


Christmas deliveries – Week commencing 21st December Imperial will be asking allretailers to place double orders as Imperial and Linfox will be closed between Christmas and New Year. In addition, there are some retailers (predominantly regional) that will have a larger impact due to the closure and lead time for their deliveries.
For example:
NT customers who order Monday will be impacted due to the delivery date then falling on or after Christmas.
Customers who have 48 hour or 72 hour lead times will be impacted due to the delivery date then falling on or after Christmas.
Customers delivered via Remit, as remit is delivered by a 3rd party, the lead time will cause deliveries to fall on or after Christmas.

We understand this impact is not ideal but rest assured that Imperial have exhausted all options on how best to service stores over the holiday period.
TSG has requested extensions on terms and credit for impacted stores and Imperial are currently working through with their finance team. We will share details once confirmed.

TSG has now realigned all carton subcategories for Bata products which had changed due to new smaller carton configurations. These include B&H 30s, Holiday Kings 22s, Dunhill 23s, Rothmans 30s, Pall Mall 30s, Winfield 30s and 40s and is necessary for promotional and price board purposes.

For example, Rothman 30/120 carton will change from R30X4 back to RTH30 in line with the packet subcategory whilst the 180-stick carton will be changed to RTH30D.

Most changes can be done automatically by TSG however, those without Bata terms and still selling the older style cartons need to let the IT dept know so we can accommodate for this.

Instructions on how to so in the link here.
