Connecticut Reacts To CVS Pulling Tobacco Products
The CVS Caremark chain of drug stores are reinforcing their mission as a pharmacy by announcing removal of all tobacco products from shelves this fall.
The Rhode Island based pharmacy announced today they are kicking the tobacco-sales habit, a move that some are calling “unprecedented”.
The nation’s #2 drug store chain says it will rid the shelves of tobacco products after selling them for years. We spoke to smokers like Patrick Ianotti, who has been buying cigarettes at CVS for years. Come October 1, the store will close its doors on tobacco sales.
“I’m sure that they do care and I’m sure it is helping with their public relations, it does make them look a little bit better,” says Ianotti.
