Default Marlboro cigarettes – Philip Morris

Link

Philip Morris International, the tobacco giant behind Marlboro and other leading brands, is hoping to phase out manufacturing cigarettes entirely and move into smoke-free products only.

The New York-based multibillion-dollar company announced that they’ve chosen to do “something really big” by moving away from cigarette production and placing emphasis on electronic substitutes instead.

Sears could learn from Philip Morris on changing your business model based on Trends.

Yeah Sears should just close their brick and mortar stores and sell online, oh, that's been done already.

I have heard a few years ago that Philip Morris was the perfect stock. So in the past they have sure found out a way to run a profitable business.

I wonder if Philip Morris can thrive with the business change.

Brick and mortar stores are swimming against the current but Wal Mart, Dollar General, and others have managed to keep going.

They are probably switching for their own good not consumers. Lying piece of crap company.

There would still be a lot more of them here if they hadn't taxed them out of so many peoples means. They'll now likely replace that lost revenue with another sin tax and I'm a betting it will be sugar.

As long as the product still contains Nicotine and still gets people addicted, it will continue to sell. Sears should slip some meth into their clothing lines.

Lampbert was never interested in saving Sears, he just wanted the real estate. Now it looks like he will get it in the fire sale.
It is pretty ironic that the store that pretty much invented the mail order business was run out of business by a mail order business. The only difference is Amazon has a web site and not a fat paper catalog.

Only 14% of Americans smoke? That can't be right. I see people smoking in cars all the time, you can always tell when their window is open a couple of inches in the winter. Today on the way home from work I was watching cars turning while I was sitting at the traffic light and there was a hell of lot more people smoking than 14%.

One thing that I never understood....why do smokers open their car window? Are they somehow thinking it's better to not breath their own 2nd hand smoker?

that does sound like a shockingly low number.

Is there anything better than a Marlboro Red and a cup of coffee in the morning? Damn I miss that.

American made Marlboro reds are a universal currency when it comes to getting small favors from officials.

I didn't know there was a difference until I tried Peruvian Marlboros, they burned incredibly fast, like three drags and they were down to the filter

You may be right about the sugar but more people who live below the poverty line smoke(25%) than those who live above the poverty line(14%).

According to the CDC the number was 15% as of 2016.

It has to be that many smokers don’t admit they are smokers. Got to be higher than that, I would think more like 20-25%

Sad but only people I see that smoke now are minimum wage workers that don’t care about thEir health or future.

Im not anti smoking in theory but it won’t bother me if only ecigs are sold.

Of of course Juul is the new thing for kids. I just hope it is a safer alternative. I’m sure my son and daughter have “Juuled” but not happy about it. Better than cigs.
