CVS Health to Open Vending Kiosks on College Campuses and in Travel Hubs
NEC member CVS Health announced the opening of vending kiosks in high traffic areas like airports, bus stations and college campuses.
The vending machines will be stocked with over 70 useful goods for people on the go including toiletries, snacks, batteries, and stain removers. The first of CVS’s vending machines was opened in Boston’s South Station and one in New York’s LaGuardia Airport will open in the near future. This fall, the pharmacy giant hopes to open 25 more kiosks throughout New York and New England. CVS hopes that the touchscreen kiosks will help them reach a larger audience while making traveling more convenient for their customers.
“We are always looking for new ways to combine convenience and innovation to help better serve our customers,” Judy Sansone, senior vice president of front store business and chief merchant at CVS Health, said in a statement. “Our new CVS Pharmacy vending machine program allows us to extend that convenience beyond our brick-and-mortar locations.”
The New England Council commends CVS Health for adapting to consumers changing needs and wishes them luck in their new venture. Read more in The Boston Globe.
