CVS made a landmark announcement Wednesday that its 7,600 stores will stop selling tobacco products by October. That's a big deal. The company admitted that it expects to lose $2 billion in sales this year.

The fact is, many of America's largest retail chains make a ton of money selling cigarettes. And while some big retailers, like Target and Wegmans, kicked their cigarette habits years ago, a number of big companies are still addicted.
