CVS To End Tobacco Sales

In a move towards more focus on customer health, CVS has ended all sale of tobacco products a month earlier than expected. The announcement initially came earlier this year, though the transition is sooner than anticipated. The company will also tweak it’s name from CVS Caremark to CVS Health, though the signs of the over 7,700 CVS locations will not change. Now instead of cigarettes and cigars, customers will now see nicotine gum and other products that help smokers kick the habit. The move is an effort to accommodate the aging Baby Boomers plus many Americans who are currently uninsured though expected to get coverage under the federal health care overhaul.

From NBC New York

The company said it could no longer sell tobacco in a setting where health care is delivered, and the presence of that product was hard to justify when it tried teaming up with hospital groups and doctors to help with patient care.
