    So one of our members posted an Activity Status update about Wall Street Journal having on their cover a picture and brief article on how CVS, the drugstore chain, decided to stop selling cigarettes as they are trying to promote themselves as being more health conscious; more of their stores have Minute Clinics and more health awareness programs.

    For those of you who might work at the retail level in their stores, or at a store just like it, what are you thoughts on this….being a good or bad retail move? What kind of impact, beyond just a loss of profits, do you think the store will see? Will the store also lose loyal customers?
