It’s a pretty big deal that CVS is stopping the sale of Tobacco Products by October 2014. Their reasoning mentioned in this article below is spot on – they are following their mission and vision rather than the bottom line.
Kudos to CVS for taking a big stand in this area. I like what Troyen A. Brennan said regarding the effect this could have on the tobacco industry,
“It’s obvious that the average person will just find somewhere else to buy cigarettes. What we’re thinking about is if others want to emulate this business decision we’ve made, then over time that will make cigarettes less available — and scientific literature does suggest that a reduction in the availability of cigarettes reduces smoking.”
