CVS Expands Healthy Foods Initiative
CVS announced today the expansion of its healthier foods and beverages initiative to more than 2,900 stores nationwide. Throughout the year, 100 stores each week are being enhanced with a carefully curated selection of national and niche better-for-you brands that make healthier eating convenient and affordable. CVS launched the program as a 500-store pilot in 2015, part of its effort to evolve into a health destination by making better health easy for its customers.
Total Retail’s Take: This news shouldn’t come as a surprise to those who have been following CVS as of late. With its MinuteClinics, which are staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants who specialize in family healthy care, and its decision to stop selling cigarettes and other tobacco products, CVS has made clear its desire to help its customers lead healthier lives.
