LAVAL, Quebec -- Circle K Stores Inc. will now offer Finiti Branding Group LLC's FIN Electronic Cigarettes in each of the convenience store chain's eight regions. Circle K Stores will sell the disposable FIN Electronic Cigarettes, which are equivalent to more than two packs of traditional cigarettes, according to the manufacturer.
Additionally, Circle K will carry rechargeable FIN Electronic Cigarettes and accessories.
FIN Electronic Cigarettes will begin an aggressive marketing and advertising campaign nationally to increase brand awareness, the Northbrook, Ill.-based manufacturer added.
"Our product line is a natural fit in Circle K and will cater to the increased demand for high-quality, reliable electronic cigarettes from the Circle K customer base," Finiti Branding Group President Russell Stone said.
Circle K is driving sales of the product with in-store point-of-sale (POS) materials and point-of-purchase (POP) displays on or behind the counter near the register.
The Finiti Branding Group is a two-generation, three-family business founded in 2011. It has an onsite quality-control team with regular testing by a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA)-accredited third party. FIN Electronic Cigarettes are delivered and serviced by a global network of distributor partners.
