Would you get a facial in CVS? What about a hand massage or a nail touch-up? Soon enough, these services might just be an option during your regular drugstore runs.
According to a Chicago Tribune article, the nation’s two largest drugstore chains, CVS and Walgreens, are giving their beauty departments an overhaul with new beauty boutiques and redesigns.
Hmmm…I’m interested. I frequent CVS for most of my skin care and beauty products, so what exactly do these upgrades entail? CVS will carry more luxury brands, including Bioelements, Cargo and H2O Plus, and it will add on beauty boutiques that offer a variety of spa services such as facials, nail touch-ups and hand massages.
While this might seem great at first, it doesn’t really sit well with me once I think about it a bit more. The thought of receiving spa services at CVS kind of sketches me out; getting a facial at a CVS isn’t that appealing in general. I like CVS for the fact that I can go in, get what I want and get out without some over-eager counter girl pestering me. In my opinion, CVS should just stay CVS. If they want an upgrade, they should make the store more appealing and possibly train their employees to be a tad nicer.
However, I’m sure some people love the thought of a drugstore beauty boutique. What do you think?
