CVS is opening 12 additional CVS Pharmacy y más stores in New York and New Jersey, with a focus on grocery items, reports Progressive Grocer. The stores are a one-stop shop for consumers, offering more than 1,500 grocery products from Hispanic brands such as Iberia Foods, Yaucono, Fabuloso, Tio Nacho, Pilon, and Café La Llave.
“Our CVS Pharmacy y más stores have been hugely beneficial to providing a more inclusive environment and value-based personalized selection for our Hispanic customers,” said Mayra Boitel, VP, chief merchant of alternative formats at CVS Health. “Customers can access familiar brands they already know and love, speak with bilingual staff who can clearly answer any questions about their medication regimen, and easily navigate throughout the store to find what they need quickly. We understand our Hispanic customers are looking for more personalized shopping experiences and we’re eager to deliver in these markets and make them feel at home while they pick up their essentials.”
Since 2015, CVS Pharmacy has opened more than 200 CVS Pharmacy y más locations in more than 90 cities across California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas, and Puerto Rico. Full Story
