This study explored the nature and extent of tobacco advertising and promotions at POS near 904 junior, senior and vocational high schools in rural and urban areas of 10 cities across China. We found higher density of both cigarette and e-cigarette retailers both urban and rural schools in Chongqing. Urban schools in Shenyang also had higher cigarette retailer density. Approximately half of cigarette and e-cigarette retailers near schools did not display required signage prohibiting sales to minors.
