The consumer products division of U.S. Tobacco Cooperative Inc. (USTC), Premier Manufacturing of Chesterfield, MO, is now supplying TRAFFIC® brand cigarettes to Circle K stores in 40 states. Circle K is a subsidiary of Alimentation Couche-Tard which operates 4,700+ convenience stores in the United States.

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Circle K. We look forward to supplying Circle K convenience stores with the highest quality U.S. tobacco products as they continue their growth here,” said USTC Chief Executive Officer Stuart Thompson.

The national roll-out of TRAFFIC® cigarettes into Circle K convenience stores was completed in June 2016. TRAFFIC cigarettes will be supported with a national advertising campaign and on-going promotional support in Circle K retail stores.

“The combination of high-quality U.S. flue-cured tobacco, manufactured in Timberlake, NC and a value price should make TRAFFIC® cigarettes a huge success with Circle K adult age consumers,” said Thompson.
