Is this nationwide?

WTF is this crap? I feel like I'm at some sort of new age spa facility run by a middle aged hippy woman named Flower or something.

It's worse than elevator music. It is legitimately agitating the customers. How bad is your store music when random people mention how bizarre and terrible it is when picking up their meds.

My store installed a TV in the pharmacy waiting room recently. It plays really loud ads all day, and every 5 minutes there's a song for an HIV med that plays. It could be worse.

Do they still have that annoying robo call voice? "One pharmacy call, two pharmacy calls, lane one". I still have PTSD from that.
so ficking true - I walked into a store with my wife when we were dating and I heart "3 pharmacy calls" and apparently I just froze - she said the look on my face was priceless - so glad I don't have to hear that anymore

This is going to sound pretty sad but at one point the phone system in my store broke and it didn't shout "1 pharmacy call, 2 pharmacy call" despite the phone ringing. I had to check the phone every once in a while to make sure the light wasn't blinking. Somehow, that gave me more anxiety and dread than the stupid voice.

Another fun story. The music for my store was wonky for more than a week. It didn't play any of the usual CVS music or commercial. Instead it cycled through 10-30 secs of random songs with a very wide range of genres. One moment you're listening to classical music and suddenly it's playing "No Diggity" before it moved on to that Frozen song.

I’m glad I’m not the only one with one pharmacy call PTSD (you know you all read that in the robo voice).

Also I was going to comment about music driving sales but was beat to it, good on ya mate.
