CVS announced that its receipts will be one-quarter shorter after lots of customers complained about the length of the receipts.
People across the internet have been posting pictures showing super long receipts even if they only bought one or two items.

“If I only buy two things at CVS does my receipt really need to be three feet long?” said one Twitter user, Rogan Tuck.
Rob Price, chief marketing officer for CVS, said via its Facebook page that they’ve been listening to the feedback and looked into the issue.
“You asked for ALL the savings and LESS paper,” Price said. “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.”
The smaller receipts will start printing in the coming weeks.
