Just like everybody else, I’ll be shopping for backpacks, pencils, notebooks and tons of other back-to-school supplies during the next few weeks.  Considering the $12 backpacks and $.97 notebooks I just saw in Target’s sales ad, I’ll be doing most of my back-to-school shopping there. In addition to the back-to-school madness,  I now have another reason to visit my hands down favorite store; because I can pick up our family prescriptions there as well.  CVS Pharmacy is moving into Target stores nationwide.


Target has over 1,500 in-store pharmacies across the U.S. and as of December 2015 CVS Pharmacy will be operating them.  The 79 in-store clinics that Target previously offered will be added to CVS’s list of super convenient Minute Clinics.

Target and CVS are working together to make a smooth transition for shoppers.  Considering that both stores share the same brand colors, CVS seems right at home when I visited Target.  But, to answer a few questions you might have at the new partnership, here ya go.
