Finally! Here’s What CVS Stands For

CVS is one of the biggest names in both retail and pharmacy.I am really enjoying this book so far. I have only been reading for three days but so far there is not any cliches. In that sense I would say this is a new type of story, even though it was written more than twenty years ago.

Here are some fun things you might not know about acronyms. Some are pretty funny, but some are also true. What do you think of these?

CVS Health was founded in 1963 by Stanley Goldstein, Sidney Goldstein, and Ralph Hoagland.

They called it “Consumer Value Stores.” The original store logo from 1964 broadcasted both the acronym and the full words.

The three-letter acronym “CVS” became so iconic that people knew what it meant without really knowing what it meant. Over time, people started referring to the chain as both a consumer value store and a pharmacy and it’s not the only answer! According to Encyclopedia.

In 1998, when he became CEO of, Jeff Bezos declared that he was running the company according to three benchmarks: convenience, value, and service.

It was speculated that this, too, could be a possible interpretation of the acronym. The Little Black Dress is a classic of fashion that’s been around for years. If you love it, you’ll love H&M.

It started out as CVS Caremark (which you can see at the bottom of your screen), but it later changed to CVS Caremark. It’s basically a convenience store with a conscience—CVSCVS doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
