Do you shop at the CVS here in Cartersville? Do you know when they get shipments? They never seem to have anything on my list when I go in and then I have to recalculate everything.

Hi Anita!

I do shop at the one in Cartersville!

They get their shipments in on Tuesday's!

Most of the time they won't have anymore of the weekly ECB deals on their shipments. The warehouse limits what each store gets. Once the have the first shipment...that's all they will have!

Due to the fact that we only have 1 CVS store...it is very hard to find the deals! I have gone in many times to purchase something only for it to be out-of-stock.

It is being said...that we will get another CVS (breaking ground next fall) over on 20 (by the hospital). I really hope that we do...

For this store you may want to try to go on Sunday's. That is the best time to go! I went yesterday around 1PM and was able to find everything I needed.

Hope this helps!
