Dunhill cigars are now back in retail shops across Australia and New Zealand, after they were sold out at the Australian tobacco giant’s flagship store in Hobart for nearly two months.
In a statement released to News.co.uk, Dunhill said the stock had been sold out for more than a week and it had been “very difficult to locate suitable stock” as there were currently no new Dunhill stocks available.
“While the stock is currently available at our stores, we cannot supply new stocks as we are unable to meet the demand,” Dunhill Australia general manager Stephen Stacey said.
“We appreciate your patience as we work to resolve this issue quickly.”
The Australian Government has been urged to intervene in Dunhill’s stock market woes, as the company continues to face criticism over a poor management culture.
A new report has revealed that Dunhill had to shut down its Dunhill Australian tobacco store and shift thousands of employees from its Melbourne location to Hobart in the wake of a series of bad publicity surrounding its poor handling of tobacco sales.
Dunhill has also lost more than $4 billion in Australian market value since 2011.
