HOW IS IT THAT SOME OF THE SMALL LOCAL STORES ARE ALLOWED TO SMOKE IN THE STORE? Running in to buy bread and you come out smelling like you were in a bar? They think the air filter machines make them above the smoking laws?? Like no one can tell they are smoking behind the counter?? HEIGHTS MARKET IS ONE FOR EXAMPLE! ANYONE ELSE NOTICE THIS?

Ugh. Seriously? How about you run in somewhere else to buy bread if it bothers you? Problem solved.

I am a frequent customer of the business that you are referring to and they DO NOT SMOKE IN THE PLACE OF BUSINESS. You must be pissed about something else. Go in and ask to look at the survaliance cameras if you don't believe me. Smoking is NOT done in the store. I have taken breaks with the employees OUTSIDE and that is where the smoking is done. You people need to get the facts before you go blowing smoke up your ass again.

I have actually never posted on a thread about Heights Market, never had a reason to, until my daughter came home a couple weeks ago with a product from their store that had expired over a year ago. I sent her back up there with the product and a note attached explaining my disgust. So think what you will, they can't deny it, unless the clerk did not forward the product and note to the owner as I asked in the note.

It's the owners business not yours. Why should it matter where they smoke? Why shouldnt they be able to. You can smoke in local bars. Like someone else said if you don't like it go somewhere else and shut up.

I don't care what people do, to each their own. But it is against the law to smoke inside of any public place in the state of Il. I know its privately owned, but if they serve the public then they can't smoke inside. But like I said, if you got em smoke em!

Under that type of mindset it would be okay to drink get drunk and kill your family because if I want to do it it is okay even if the laws state it's ILLEGAL. You should really think about what you say.

If it s so highly illegal. Why can you still smoke in the bars in town?it s actually up to the owners discretion . They own the store not you!

It's still illegal to smoke in bars in WF, but its cheaper for owner to pay the ticket/fine if getting **caught** than it is to tell people they cant smoke in their bar and losing the customer's buisness, because they'll just find a bar that will let them smoke in it.

**Caught= They only way to get caught doing something in WF, is if you murder someone or sell drugs. Other than that, the WFPD turn a blind eye to everything.
