NC tobacco industry shrugs at CVS decision to drop tobacco products

RALEIGH Wednesday’s announcement by the nation’s second-largest drugstore chain that it would stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products was met with a wary shrug by North Carolina’s tobacco industry.

CVS Caremark – which owns 7,600 stores nationwide, including more than 210 in North Carolina – said Wednesday that it would cease selling tobacco products by Oct. 1.

The decision, which made national headlines and drew lavish praise from President Barack Obama and from smoking foes, was part of a shift in emphasis away from retail sales and toward health care services, CVS officials said.
