CVS pharmacy

Two weeks ago I got the thrill of heading to New York City for Blogher ’12.  I am truly a southern country girl, so anything NY is out of my element, but I held up okay. Okay I may have cried once, but that was only because I had a long walk with heavy bags and I’m pregnant.  Seriously though it was a lot of fun to see bloggers from around the US in person and to hear Martha Stewart and Katie Couric speak.

I really couldn’t have done the trip without great sponsors, one of which was CVS/pharmacy.  While I was there they gave me the “difficult” task of asking bloggers what they love about CVS/pharmacy.  There is really nothing difficult about that, other than the long answers most would give because they love them A LOT.  I know most of you agree.

The top answers I heard were:

1.  They are not only the closest to my house, but also the nicest to shop at.
2.  Their reward system is the easiest to understand.
3.  Love their rain check policies.
4.  Like how responsive corporate is.

I know as local CVS shoppers you may not deal with CVS/pharmacy corporate very often, but for me the #4 answer is actually my top reason for loving CVS.  Whenever y’all email with a question on new policies or something I’ve not seen before it takes maybe an hour and I have an answer.  They are eager to hear feedback when deals don’t work right or ads are too confusing.  They are also eager to interact with shoppers directly and have an incredibly active twitter and facebook page, where many stores haven’t even begun thinking about social media yet.

What do you love most about CVS/pharmacy?
