Industry News: CVS Pharmacy Thinks “Outside the Box” with Introduction of Health and Wellness Vending Machines

 

Automated retail vending machines will be placed at select landmark locations across the Northeast, including Boston's South Station and New York City's LaGuardia Airport

Company continues to innovate and to meet customers where they are with unparalleled access to on-the-go solutions

WOONSOCKET, R.I., Sept. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS Pharmacy, the retail division of CVS Health (NYSE: CVS), today announced that the company is introducing automated retail vending machines stocked with convenient, on-the-go necessities including over-the-counter health products, "better-for-you" snacks and popular personal care products typically sold at CVS Pharmacy locations nationwide. The new vending machines are designed to help maximize convenience and meet customers where they are with on-the-go wellness solutions outside the traditional retail space.

"We are always looking for new ways to combine convenience and innovation to help better serve our customers," said Judy Sansone, Senior Vice President of Front Store Business & Chief Merchant at CVS Pharmacy. "Our new CVS Pharmacy vending machine program allows us to extend that convenience beyond our brick-and-mortar locations to offer customers on-the-go essentials in the locations where they often need them most, like airports, hotels and other transportation hubs."

Each vending machine will be customized with offerings to fit each location with more than 70 products to choose from, including many from exclusive CVS Pharmacy store brand lines like CVS Health, Beauty 360, Gold Emblem and Gold Emblem Abound. Products available in the vending machines include:

  • Over the counter remedies for allergy, pain relief, digestive health, and cough and cold
  • Beauty and personal care products like shaving cream, deodorant, makeup remover
  • Vitamins and supplements
  • Eye care and oral health care products
  • Solutions for healthy sleep such as melatonin
  • Children's health and on-the-go first aid items such as bandages and antiseptic cream
  • Healthy snacks and beverages
  • Home and office essentials such as batteries, phone chargers, earbuds, lint rollers and stain removal sticks

The first 25 CVS Pharmacy vending machines will be unveiled throughout New England and New York between now and the end of October in targeted areas including:

  • Airports including LaGuardia in New York City
  • Public transit stations such as South Station Bus Terminal in Boston
  • Office parks
  • College campuses

These machines enhance customer convenience with strategic placements in areas well-trafficked by local residents and travelers alike who may need products in a pinch, eliminating the need to make a special trip to a retail location. CVS Pharmacy is also considering an additional 50+ locations throughout the country including college campuses, corporate offices, hotels and other transportation hubs to host vending machines in the future.

"These new vending machines allow us to make our innovative CVS Brand products available to customers outside of our store locations for the very first time," said Cia Tucci, Vice President of Store Brands and Quality Assurance at CVS Health. "The CVS Pharmacy vending machines will be located in places where we can bring our customers smart solutions and convenient access to the products they trust when they are on-the-go."

To help customers navigate this new shopping experience, the vending machines, will feature a 22" multi-touch screen, high resolution images with expansive product information and a QR code reader to read barcodes and promotional codes. The machines will be ADA compliant, allowing those in wheelchairs to fully access the touchscreen and its functionality, and will accept all major credit and debit cards.

CVS Pharmacy is a trusted health and beauty destination for more than 5 million shoppers every day. The new vending machines, along with recent nationwide store design enhancements and expanding digital programs, represent the company's ongoing efforts to evolve the retail customer experience in stores and beyond. With this pilot program, CVS Health adds to a growing portfolio of innovative services including CVS Curbside Pickup, CVS Pay and digital pharmacy tools available through the CVS Pharmacy app, that together build on the company's enterprise mission to help people on their path to better health.

Company Spotlight
You are what you eat. That’s the mantra the three friends behind Vive Organic shared. It all started when Wyatt was in Florida, feeling tired and rundown after a long work trip. He happened upon a local vendor selling homemade ginger shots, and the rest is history. After experiencing a full body revival, he made it his mission to spread that same feeling with the world.

Wyatt shared his experience with his equally health conscious and entrepreneurial friends, Kyle and JR. They were immediately on board to bring Vive Organic to life. And so, the trio left their respective places of work in favor of reinventing ways to deliver naturally restorative ingredients to people everywhere.

To this day, that belief holds strong. By providing the freshest and most powerful ingredients, the Vive Organic team is committed to making a positive impact on people’s lives.

spiralps

Product Spotlight: Spiralps Natural Dirnk

Spiralps® is a new type of natural drink, the first of its kind containing fresh microalgae Spirulina.

The fresh Spirulina in Spiralps® not only tastes great, (far better than any dried form) it is nutritionally superior, too!

Our Spirulina is not cultivated out in an open pond, but in a controlled environment, to guarantee the highest quality. Furthermore, our Spirulina has never been heated, thanks to an advanced high-pressure pasteurization system that preserves nutritional values.

Spiralps® is produced in Switzerland and contains herb-extracts from the pristine Alps and organic-fruits, combining the benefits of all these raw ingredients, to deliver more, natural vitamins, carotenoids, antioxidants, and fibers.

Spiralps® is THE solution for consumers that are looking for a "wellness" drink that helps them boost their vital-energy level, fight fatigue, combat stress, and live healthy.

 

Ingredients:
Crystal clear Alpine mountain water, organic apples, organic peaches, apple sweetener, fresh Spirulina, organic lemon, Alpine herbal extracts, natural flavor.

 

100% Natural with Fresh Spirulina & Organic Fruits
NO chemicals, NO e-series, NO preservatives, NO additives
Never heated to preserve its intrinsic superior qualities
Not just another watered down mix with the minimal percentages

Unique Packaging
Our bottle is not just an "off the shelf" product; it is the result of extensive investigation and development.
Because Spiralps® is 100% natural without any added chemicals; it was quite a challenge to keep the beverage fresh for our customers!
How could we protect the fresh Spirulina against ravaging UV rays, and oxidation while keeping the other natural ingredients deliciously fresh?

 

Our solution:
The Spiralps® special bottle...

Our unique 200 ml bottle was specifically designed for Spiralps® in a UV- and light- opaque polypropylene with an oxygen-barrier to protect the product against oxidation and degradation.

Along with the bottle design, Spiralps® is cold pasteurized and this new pasteurization technique ideally preserves all the natural ingredients.
