The pharmacy is located in the city Renton, which is about 10 miles outside Seattle.  It’s the first of three pharmacies CVS hopes to open in the Seattle area this year.

The store is the first in the country to open, tobacco-free, since the company’s announcement it would phase out tobacco products at all stores by this fall.
