Clark’s Shur Fine, at 33 North Dryden Street, was found to have violated the Adolescent Tobacco Use Prevention Act. Board of Health staff member Steve Kern announced the findings at a meeting last week.

Health officials asked for the business to be penalized with a $450 fee with a $50 mandatory surcharge. The board of health unanimously voted to pass the fine.

Reached for comment Tuesday morning, a representative with Clark’s Shur Fine said the grocery store would not be commenting.
