Age Restricted Sales

Wrexham trading standards team provides information and advice to businesses in Wrexham to help them comply with the law.

The trading standards team works with partner organisations to reduce the supply of age-restricted products such as alcohol, tobacco, solvents and fireworks to underage people.

Regular test purchasing operations are conducted to single out retailers who sell to underage people with the prospect of court action.
