There has been much hoopla over the CVS decision to discontinue tobacco sales at their stores. CVS is estimating the decision will cost them $2 billion, but feels the decision is correct as they are looking to position themselves as a health care provider. Heres an interesting question: If CVS is looking to be a leader and has elected to discontinue the sales of a legal product, why not really become a leader and discontinue the sale of alcohol and sugary foods and drinks? Havent alcohol and sugary foods caused as much, if not more, damage to the health of the public? Or are those dollars too attractive for CVS to walk away from?
