Easter display on Dec. 27 at CVS

Realist Rob reports his wife snapped this display at the CVS on Bridge Street in Weymouth today.

This is retail at its most pathetic state. Who wants candy to sit around their house for a quarter of a year?! WTF

Hopkinton's only drugstore is suing CVS, alleging the national pharmacy giant is trying to muscle into the town by cutting off a key part of its business.

In a lawsuit filed this week in US District Court, Hopkinton Drug alleges the CVS wing that administers pharmacy benefits for many employers is refusing to do any more business with the store as part of an "unlawful civil conspiracy" with the CVS wing that runs retail outlets, in an attempt to break into the Hopkinton pharmacy market.

EffervescentThree Boston-area CVS customers have filed a class-action lawsuit against the pharmacy chain, alleging they were defrauded by a cold remedy that didn't work.

The lawsuit, filed yesterday in US District Court in Boston, seeks at least $5 million - and possibly more - for CVS's sales of "effervescent formula" AirShield, a generic version of Airborne, whose maker claimed it could fight colds up until the point it agreed to a $23-million settlement in a similar lawsuit last year (Airborne's maker agreed to settle without admitting any wrongdoing).

Cleary Squared thinks they're wonderful, after getting into one in Porter Square right away to get his ears cleared out of wax:

... It doesn't make sense for people with minor injuries have to wait for care from their PCP, especially on the weekends, or have to shell out a much higher copay at the ER. The "continuum of care" will still be there; it just took the urgency of the situation and the ambition of the patient to take action.

That is why I made the choice to have my earwax situation taken care of now, rather than waiting two weeks for my PCP to do the same thing and have my ears plug up worse. This is why I had to go to Cambridge to do it, and I'd do it again above Mayor Menino's (and my PCP's) objections. ...

Tom Menino: Allowing retailers to make money off of sick people is wrong.

Remember that the next time you head to Rite Aid for some Nyquil.

OK, he said that in the context of how he thinks those planned CVS MinuteClinics will "seriously compromise quality of care and hygiene," but, um, wait, hygiene? People will get covered in soot at the CVS? Focus, Mr. Mayor, focus. Like, maybe, on the city's plan to ban trans fats in restaurants.
