CVS Will Stop Selling All Tobacco Products In Stores

CVS Will Stop Selling All Tobacco Products In Stores

That’s right, the major drugstore chain CVS Caremark will no longer be selling any tobacco products in any of their stores by October 1, 2014. This will be happening in their 7,600 stores across the U.S.

This will make CVS the first pharmacy chain in the U.S. to ban tobacco products on their shelves.  And continue with the CVS position on being a major health care provider.  CVS will lose about 2 billion dollars a year in sales as a result of this move. 

Smoking kills about 480,000 people in the U.S. each year, and this is one move to help curb those numbers. 

As of now Target and Wegmans stores don’t carry tobacco products. Find out more about CVS and their move to cut tobacco here.
