Combating OMinors Buying Alcohol and Tobacco

New Image Marketing’s C.O.M.B.A.T. (Combating Of Minors Buying Alcohol and Tobacco) Program provides a comprehensive compliance and measurement program to eliminate underage purchases of alcohol and tobacco. This Program will reduce the loss of revenue due to failed sting operations. C.O.M.B.A.T. focuses on preventing the sale of alcohol and tobacco to minors through proven processes: prominent signage, random site visits, training resources, and web-based reporting and analysis. Any program can be customized to meet your individual needs.

Easy access of alcohol and tobacco is forcing state and federal agencies to crack down on illegal sales to minors. This enforcement is resulting in negotiation settlements with major oil companies, drug store chains, and other retail organizations.

The C.O.M.B.A.T. Program offers retailers a proven solution.


On a monthly or quarterly basis, our specially-trained C.O.M.B.A.T. validators conduct random, anonymous store visits to attempt and/or to purchase alcohol and tobacco products. Within 24 hours, the CO.M.B.A.T. validator provides survey results to the client through automated reporting including client-specific websites. Customized summary reports and analysis provide real data including score averages and regional results most accurately reflecting the point-of-sale activity.
