I have been purchasing my pipe tobacco from CVS for years. They are handy and I own a few shares so there I went. Now as you say I am on my to Walgreens. The last time I went into CVS to purchase pipe tobacco (about $9.50) I ended up buying $37.55. This CEO has not only cost CVS $1.2B in sales revenue but a lot more. CVS will be competing with Rite Aid to see who goes belly up first.
Other then the loss of 2 billion in sales which will drive the stock down compared to other stores who will pick up that profit. Why not stop selling candy, beer, soda, cell phones etc. and the hundreds of other items that are not healthy?
