CVS to remove candy counter

CVS to remove candy counter

April 19, 2017 10:17 PM

CVS is getting rid of its candy counter, according to a report.

The drug store chain plans to reduce space for junk food, like candy and snacks, and other general merchandise. Instead, that space will be given to nutritious food and health products.

CVS tells USA Today they will make the change at several hundred stores by the end of next year. It's all part of an effort to re-invent its image as the "beacon of healthy living" rather than selling candy and treating illnesses.
