Smokingpipes doesn't carry anything except OTCs in 7oz tins, so I assume this only affects Canadians getting our codger blends. If it carried over into premiums, I'd be more concerned. But, we should do all we can to make sure our northern neighbors can get their Borkum Riff with no problems from the tax man. puffy

I wonder what’s behind this. It’s not only an STG representation. So multiple corporations are packaging this way.

All sorts of companies are doing this with all sorts of products. Its mainly due to inflation and supply shortages, but instead of raising the prices they're just giving you less product. You can thank the govt. for that. Who would've thought endless money printing would lead to higher prices?
Absolutely correct. The term for it is "shrinkflation" and Covid really accelerated its use in every industry. Remember when gatorade came in 32oz bottles? How about 11.2oz beers? It's everywhere...and it's annoying.
