Buy some Cheerios. Get a receipt the size of your father. CVS shoppers have taken over the Internet, humorously documenting their receipt woes in a selfless effort to let the world (and CVS) know that the age of the truck-sized receipt must come to an end. Sample tweet: CVS Cashier: 'Would you like your receipt?" Me: 'Yes, please.' CVS Cashier: *starts chopping down tree*" (@UNTRESOR). Please also note the hilarious photos above.
It's 2013's version of a grassroots movement, and it appears it's actually working. Because — PLOT TWIST — Redeye Chicago reports that CVS will debut "normal sized" receipts in the coming weeks. "Over the past few days we've been listening to you," CVS Chief Marketing Officer Rob Price posted on Facebook. "So, we've found a way to reduce the size of the ExtraCare portion of your receipts by 25% while still providing you all the coupons and rewards." Only 25 percent? That means our receipts will only be like, 3/4 the size of a human. If you listen closely, you can hear the soft cries of victory. — By Michaela Gianotti [Source] [Source]
