As with any retailers, tobacconists stock what they can sell. A retail business measures it's success partly by how many turnovers of inventory it can have in a year. For instance, say a store has $100,000 in inventory. It might generate $100,000 in sales from that, or $500,000. In order to stock more pipes they have to sell more. A suggestion or request for a product helps. If a lot of people ask for Petersons, there is a good chance they will stock Petersons.
