Some Florida Walmart stores will stop selling smokes. More than 25 years after Target stopped selling cigarettes, Walmart has decided to follow suit by ending tobacco sales — at least at some of the retail chain’s locations.

Company officials have announced plans to stop selling smokes in stores located in such states as California, Florida, Arkansas and New Mexico. “We are always looking at ways to meet our customers’ needs while still operating an efficient business,” reads a statement released Monday by Walmart officials. We’ll find out which Walmart stores will  stop selling cigs in the weeks ahead. I’ve heard Walmart accounts for about 5% of total cigarette sales nationwide.

Rival retailers Target and CVS have already put an end to cigarette sales, with Target clearing out its tobacco products in 1996 and CVS doing the same in 2014.
