Taking self service a bit too far ?

Apparently CVS is getting their customers involved in holding down store labor costs… WARNING customers that they need to check expiration dates on products.. Is this because their front end store staff is so short-staffed … that they don’t have time to even check for expired dates. Of course, selling out of date products is against the law in most states.. but.. then again .. Merlo and CVS stock holders got a 30% bump in salary and dividends ..  Does this suggest where the priorities of corporate management lies ?

  2. When I was with CVS, the register flagged all chidren’s OTC drugs and dairy to check the expiration date before completing the sale. Its a long-term trend.
