CVS, also known as CVS Pharmacy, is a part of the huge American healthcare company CVS Health. CVS Health also seems to be the largest pharmacy chain in the U.S., based on how much money it makes from prescriptions and how many pharmacies it has. There are currently more than 9,600 CVS Pharmacy locations in the United States. Walgreen’s is one of the company’s biggest competitors, and you can find out more about it on our site (on the Walgreen’s Near Me page). This article tells you how to find CVS near me and where its pharmacies are closest to you. It also tells you when the pharmacies are open and how you can use coupons to get really good deals.
In 1963, the first CVS pharmacy opened in Lowell, Massachusetts. The company’s headquarters are also in Massachusetts, in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. But at that time, the name “CVS,” which stands for “Consumer Value Stores,” wasn’t used. In 1964, when the company only had 17 stores, CVS got its first name. After 5 years, there were still no more than 40 stores. 1967 was the year that CVS opened its first store with a pharmacy (yes, this company wasn’t always a pharmacy). Also, Melville Corporation bought the company in 1969, which gave the company a big boost to its growth.
In the 1990s, the company bought an online drug store called Soma. Its domain (www.soma.com) no longer belongs to CVS, but you can still get to its website at www.cvs.com/. In 2015, CVS bought Target’s retail clinic and pharmacy businesses. This was one of the more recent deals (Target is another retail giant in the United States). The CEO of the company recently said that “CVS” now means “Convenience, Value, and Service” to him.
Keep in mind that CVS sells its products not only through its own chain of CVS Pharmacy stores but also through retail stores called Longs Drugs.
More than 1,100 “MinuteClinic” medical clinics are also owned by the company.
You should also know that CVS stores sell more than just drugs. They offer photo and film finishing services, cosmetics, beauty products, over-the-counter medicines, general merchandise, convenience foods, greeting cards, and more. One of the products that caused a lot of trouble was cigarettes, and on September 3, 2014, the company stopped selling cigarettes and other tobacco products.

As was already said, there are more than 9,600 CVS pharmacies in the US and Puerto Rico. But it’s important to note that the company’s online business is growing while its brick-and-mortar retail business is not. This caused over 70 stores to close in 2017. The company also owns a chain of stores called “Longs Drugs” and more than 1,100 clinics called “MinuteClinic” all over the United States. Unfortunately, CVS is only in the United States. However, there are reports that online orders can be sent to other countries.
