HANCOCK COUNTY — County residents’ reaction to CVS Caremark Corp.’s decision to stop selling cigarettes and tobacco products nationwide by Oct. 1 was a mixed bag Wednesday, ranging from happiness to aggravation to indifference.
Brandee Bastin, Tobacco Initiative coordinator for Hancock County Tobacco Free Coalition, said word of the announcement, which affects CVS stores in Greenfield, McCordsville and New Palestine, lit up her phone Wednesday morning.
“I just think it’s a great step and very admirable that they have chosen health over profits,” Bastin said.
