CVS/pharmacy is the first national pharmacy chain to stop selling tobacco products.
Its parent company, CVS Caremark, announced that tobacco products would no longer be carried in CVS/pharmacy stores after Oct. 1.
"Put simply, the sale of tobacco products is inconsistent with our purpose," Larry J. Merlo, president and CEO of CVS Caremark, said in a statement.
CVS Caremark is not only the first to stop selling tobacco, but it is also the largest pharmacy in the United States with more than 7,600 stores nationwide.
