The article reports that several business organizations have established the Save Our Stores coalition in response to proposed tobacco-related ordinances in New York City. One of the proposals involves establishing a minimum price of 10.50 U.S. dollars per pack of cigarettes and little cigars, while another will raise the legal age for purchasing tobacco products to 21. The third proposed ordinance will ban all retail tobacco product displays from the public view, except in certain stores.
