The company acquired Eckerd in 2004 and picked up 700 stores from Albertsons in 2006, increasing its store count to 6,100 sites in about 45 states. In 2005, CVS sales topped $37 billion with a workforce of 148,000 people.

Pharmacies in nearly 20 states can refuse to fill women’s prescriptions for contraception, including the morning-after pill. Pharmacies are not ensuring that patients get their doctor-prescribed contraceptives so NARAL Pro-Choice America is imploring major pharmacies (Wal-Mart, CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreen, and Eckerd) not to interfere with a woman's choice.

CVS agreed to pay shareholders $110 million to settle a lawsuit claiming it violated federal securities laws by making false statements to artificially pump up stock prices. According to the lawsuit, the company illegally inflated earnings by delaying discounts on merchandise. Additionally, CEO Thomas M. Ryan allegedly waited several months in 2001 to reveal company plans to close 200 locations that failed to meet sales projections, and information about a shortage of pharmacists that would have negatively affected the company.
