One business fails tobacco compliance check
Red Wing Minnesota 2760 North Service Drive / P.O. Box 15 55066

Red Wing Smoke Shop, 170 S. Tyler Road, failed a tobacco compliance check Aug. 28, Red Wing Police Department reported.

The department periodically conducts the checks — in which a police officer sends a minor into an establishment to attempt to buy tobacco products. If the establishment makes the sale, the business fails.

The other 17 establishments checked that day passed.

Red Wing Smoke Shop and the employee who made the sale may face charges.
