CVS To End Tobacco Product Sales
By October, CVS will no longer sell any tobacco products in all of their 7,500 pharmacies.
According to USA Today, ”Selling tobacco is very inconsistent with being in that business,” said Helena Foulkes, CVS’s pharmacy president. “We really thought about this decision as it relates to the future as a health company — it’s good for customers and our company, in the long run.”
Other pharmacy’s are also expected to follow suit soon as well.
CVS spoke with tobacco company executives this past week, and explained the decision.
