Date:6/3/2008

Grills, Photo Books and Shaving Kits Are Just a Few of Dad's Favorite

Things Available at CVS/pharmacy's 6,300 Convenient U.S. Locations

WOONSOCKET, R.I., June 3 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy, America's largest retail pharmacy with 6,300 convenient locations nationwide, offers shoppers a wide selection of affordable, department store-quality gifts for Father's Day, making it easy to find just the right gift.

"Consumers are scaling back on luxuries this year but they do not have to sacrifice quality. Shoppers can save money, gas and time by picking up great gifts for Father's Day while shopping for everyday essentials at their local CVS/pharmacy," said Larry Merlo, President of CVS/pharmacy. "CVS/pharmacy offers shoppers a wide array of gifts, from exclusive shaving kits and high-end colognes to fitness gadgets and photo gifts, making it easy to find the perfect gift for every type of dad."

The Great Outdoorsman

Shoppers can choose from a variety of "summer essentials" such as Portable Tabletop Grills, $14.99 (charcoal) or $24.99 (gas), and all the utensils needed for a great cookout. Ideal for sporting activities or a relaxing day at the beach, CVS/pharmacy offers lightweight folding chairs to be used for any occasion. The Life Fitness Dual Watch & Heart Rate Monitor makes a perfect gift for $59.99. This sports watch provides electrocardiogram accuracy in seconds to help dad improve the effectiveness of his fitness program without the hassles of a chest strap.

The Sports Fan

CVS/pharmacy offers specialty "Father's Day" shaving kits from Bald Guyz and Gillette to keep dads looking and smelling great while on the course or the field. The Bald Guyz "Head of the Family" kit, exclusively available at CVS/pharmacy, retails for $17.99 and includes a high-quality travel case packed with shave gel, moisture gel, head wipes and a Schick razor. The Gillette Fusion Phenom Pack contains a razor, travel-size shave gel and shampoo. In addition, Dad can enter to win the "Play a Champion with Dad" contest from Gillette. Winners will receive the opportunity to live their dreams of teeing up with the world's best golfer, Tiger Woods, hit tennis balls with twelve-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer or play soccer with international superstar Thierry Henry. The manual razor pack retails for $9.99 and the power razor pack is $11.99. Instead of heading to a crowded department store for his favorite designer cologne, shoppers can also find high-end colognes and gift sets from Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica, Giorgio Armani and others.

The Photo Fanatic

Last-minute shoppers looking for a gift that "wows him" can quickly create a CVS/pharmacy Photo Book or photo collage to take home the same day. At any CVS/pharmacy Photo Center, shoppers can bring in their digital photos to the photo kiosk and walk away with a hard-cover bound photo book that will put a smile on dad's face. Photo books start at just $5.99 and collages are available for as little as $1.49.

The Funny Man

This year, shoppers can give dad a laugh by giving the enormously popular novelty Big Mouth Billy Bass, the singing Bass fish that moves his mouth and tail when performing. Big Mouth Billy Bass is a perfect addition to dad's office or men's den. CVS/pharmacy also has the Rapping Dawg, who will serenade dad with entertaining ditties all through the year. Both of these items are available for $9.99.

Mission Impossible?

When it seems dad has it all, shoppers can find more than 220 gift cards to popular retailers including Home Depot, Barnes & Noble, Blockbuster, Starbucks, Borders, Circuit City, Lowe's, Golfsmith, Applebee's and many others, all at your local CVS/pharmacy.
