How easy was it for kids to get cigarettes from vending machines?

Back when there were vending machines that sold cigarettes, how easy was it to purchase them? How did they work? When did they get rid of them?

As someone who lives in a country where cigarette vending machines are still legal (England) I have an excellent knowledge of cigarette vending machines as, I used to get cigarettes from them all the time. How easy it is to get them depends on where the machine is, sometimes they are really well hidden and out of sight. Other times they will be on sight for all to see so a child trying to purchase cigarettes from the machine will be caught by an adult or member of staff immediately.
Some places had cigarette machines that where quite visible, but the staff would turn a blind eye to you buying cigarettes as it would mean they’d be getting the money from it. Using them is basic enough, you have a choice of different types of cigarettes and when you;ve put your money in, the options will light up, you press th ebutton for the type you want and they will vend. One interesting point is that instead of 20 packs, most vending machines have 16 packs, why, I don’t know! They also cost alot more, but when you’re a kid, you don’t really mind paying a bit more because you can’t get them anywhere else. As a teen, there was a few places I’d always go to use cigarette machines, usually hotels, because they were either well hidden or the staff woulden’t pay attention to me using them. I was never actually once stopped from using a machine.
It’s still, over here, pretty easy for kids to use cigarette vending machines but I remember it was always nerve wrecking, the clunk of each coin going in thinking I was about to get caught!

The first recorded reference to a vending machines is found in the work of Hero of Alexandria, a first-century engineer and mathematician. His machine accepted a coin and then dispensed a fixed amount of holy water. When the coin was deposited, it fell upon a pan attached to a lever. The lever opened up a valve which let some water flow out. The pan continued to tilt with the weight of the coin until it fell off, at which point a counter-weight would snap the lever back up and turn off the valve.

Despite this early precedent, vending machines had to wait for the Industrial Age before they came to prominence. The first modern coin-operated vending machines were introduced in London, England in the early 1880s, dispensing post cards. The first vending machine in the U.S. was built in 1888 by the Thomas Adams Gum Company, selling gum on train platforms. The idea of adding simple games to these machines as a further incentive to buy came in 1897 when the Pulver Manufacturing Company added small figures which would move around whenever somebody bought some gum from their machines. This simple idea spawned a whole new type of mechanical device known as the “trade stimulators”. The birth of slot machines and pinball is ultimately rooted in these early devices.

Bulk candy machines are entirely mechanical machines that vend a handful of candy, a bouncy ball, or perhaps a capsule with a small toy or jewelry, for one or two coins.

The items may be unsorted; in that case what the customer exactly gets is subject to chance. In other instances, the customer is guaranteed a specific type of candy.

The gross margins in the bulk candy business can be quite high – gumballs, for instance, can be purchased in bulk for 2 cents apiece and sold for 25 cents in the US. Gumballs and candy have a relatively long shelf life, enabling vending machine operators to manage many machines without too much time or cost involved. In addition, the machines are typically inexpensive compared to soft drink or snack machines, which often require power and sometimes refrigeration to work. Many operators donate a percentage of the profits to charity so that locations will allow them to place the machines for free.

Bulk vending may be a more practical choice than soft drink/snack vending for an individual who also works a full-time job, since the restaurants, retail stores, and other locations suitable for bulk vending may be more likely to be open during the evening and on weekends than venues such as offices that host soft drink and snack machines.

Feel like a soft-drink while walking down the street. What do you do! Look out for a vending machine, put in a coin and out pops the can. You have got what you wanted and someone who is possibly holidaying somewhere has made a profit out of it.

You could be this person who is holidaying and has just made a profit if this vending machine belonged to you.

The vending machine business is a 100% cash-only business with a nominal initial investment (if you are not going in for the bigger vending machines) and does not require previous selling experience of any sort.

The vending machine business is a very profitable one. But for it to be profitable there are the decisive factors that you have to take proper care of the moment you decide to start this business.

Let us assume that you have decided to start a vending machine business with just one machine that will sell cigarettes. You have a competitor who also decides to start selling cigarettes through a vending machine. Both buy the same machine and same brand of cigarettes. You place your cigarette vending machine outside a gymnasium
, your competitor places his machine outside a pub. The competitor’s machine will sell the entire stock even before your machine manages to sell even one pack. If both of you decide to remove the cigarettes and replace them with health energy drinks, your machine will finish its entire stock before your oppositions machine can sell even one drink.
