CVS Promises To Shorten Their Ridiculously Long Receipts
By Bill Doyle
Have you seen one of the comically long CVS receipts on Instagram or Twitter? We’ve all experienced the feeling of wonderment when the purchase of something as small as a pack of gum results in a receipt that’s taller than a child (and that’s only a mild exaggeration). CVS has always maintained that its money saving coupons were the culprit and didn’t want to eliminate them just to make a shorter receipt.

Well, apparently the ridicule they’ve been receiving on social media has prompted the decision makers at CVS to finally take action. NBC’s “Today” show is reporting that CVS found a way to shorten their receipts by 25% without jettisoning their coupons; my guess would be a smaller font, but maybe there’s more to it.
Now, will the CVS receipt fake Twitter account come down?
