CVS is my pharmacy of choice. I am in their store a couple of times per month. I have always been aware they sell tobacco products. Yet I hardly notice them since I have no interest.
Recently they announced that by October 2014 they would no longer sell tobacco products in their 7600 pharmacy stores. That works for me. They further announced they will launch this spring a smoking cessation campaign. Sounds good to me.
They claim it is because of their commitment to health care and they are positioning themselves as a part of the health care provider team. If you want to see their public announcement and a couple of short videos, go to http://info.cvscaremark.com/cvs-insights/cvs-quits.
