  • Description

    FOR THREE DAYS BRITAIN'S CIGARETTE USERS LIVED IN A SMOKER'S PARADISE. TWO OF THE NATION'S LARGEST CHAIN STORE COMBINES DECIDED TO SLASH FIVEPENCE OFF A PACKET OF 20 CIGARETTES.

    THE DREAM OF A LIMITLESS SUPPLY OF CIGARETTES AT ONLY FIVE SHILLINGS FOR 20 CAME TO AN ABRUPT END ON MONDAY.

    BUT THE CIGARETTE MANUFACTURERS CLOSED RANKS AND ANNOUNCED THEY WOULD STOP SUPPLIES UNLESS THE NORMAL SELLING PRICE OF FIVE SHILLINGS AND FIVEPENCE FOR 20 WAS PUT BACK ON THEM. DISAPPOINTED SUPERMARKET CHIEF JACK COHEN ADMITTED DEFEAT. HE SAID: "WE WILL CONTINUE TO SELL WHAT STOCKS WE HAVE AT FIVEPENCE OFF - BUT SUPPLIES WILL RUN DRY BY THE WEEKEND."
