CVSCVS Caremark – 50 years old this year – has grown into one of the largest and most influential healthcare companies in the United States. Since its blockbuster, game-changing merger with Caremark in 2007, CVS has operated as the largest integrated provider of prescriptions and health-related services in the country. The company filled over 700 million prescriptions in 2012 and operates 650 in-store retail clinics under the Minute Clinic banner. CVS Caremark employs 200,000 workers in its more than 7,500 locations across 45 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.


CSG 80 YearsThis year, Chain Store Guide celebrates its 80th anniversary. In honor of this occasion, we are hosting a monthly series of editorials called “Chain Store Guide Through The Ages”, starting with the 1930s. We will take a look at what was happening in that time and how it affected the industries we now serve. Our Company Snapshots will examine companies from that period and see where they are today.
