The Facts Are On The Back – CVS Private Brand Takes A Stand!

This week, Woonsocket, Rhode Island based drugstore CVS features it CVS Pharmacy Private Brand over-the-counter medications in a half page ad in their weekly flyer. The ad challenges customers with the headline “The Facts are on the Back, Just check the active ingredients are the same.” The layout includes six popular OTC items in a “Buy 1 get 1 50% off” promotion as well as a “compare and save” inset of the comparable national brand product.

This takes “compare & save” to a whole different level, so instead of compare and save it really asks the question, “Why pay more?” Bravo!
