Right. Enough of this work lark, time to knock off and pop up to the smoke for, well, a smoke. And a fair few drinks with like-minded souls, of course.
Just time to highlight a small piece in The Grocer which shows the paranoia which has descended on the new measures to hide tobacco.
One main concern is the "overly prescriptive" regulations on price lists. They must be printed only in black Helvetica font on a white sheet no larger than A4, and contain only brand names, pack sizes and rrps.
All words except the title should be no higher than 4mm, which is right on the minimum threshold recommended for people with sight difficulties by the Royal National Institute of Blind People.
...stores with a large range would have to use a tiny type size.
The printed word larger than 4mm is now a threat to health, apparently.
