CVS Quits For Good.


By / / If you haven’t heard yet, the Woonsocket, RI-based CVS Caremark will stop selling tobacco products at all its CVS/pharmacy locations starting October 2014. Obviously this is a huge PR coup for the company, albeit not a financial one – CVS will be forgoing nearly $2 billion in annual revenue with the move. So bravo, CVS. We at the Egotist (tobacco-free ourselves) applaud this decision and announcement. It’s nice to see another New England brand leading the way. So what’s the lesson here, boys and girls? If a huge corporation can do it, so can you. You can read the full press release from CVS here.
