...they will stop the sale of tobacco products in their business by October 2014!
This may befuddle some, anger others, and not affect the rest, but the reason this is such awesome news is that it really is to take a stand for the health of their customers...that's right: if you didn't know, smoking kills over 1,200 people daily. As in...a product is made that kills its customers. Can you imagine buying food at the grocery store that increased your chance of dying young exponentially (there are some, but we'll talk about that in other posts like this one to help you get and stay healthy)?
So, here's to you, CVS! Thanks for taking care of the people you serve...like a mother who makes her children get shots, it's what's good for us, whether we like it or not!
Hopefully this number decreases rapidly!
