CVS opts to ditch tobacco

February 6, 2014

CVS Caremark kicked the habit Wednesday, announcing that it will stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products at its CVS/pharmacy stores across the U.S. by Oct. 1.

Comprised of more than 7,600 CVS/pharmacy stores, CVS is the first national pharmacy chain to make this change, according to the retailer. The announcement was a bold stance against tobacco use, one which President and CEO of CVS Caremark, Larry J. Merlo, said is an effort to promote health and well-being.
