LAS VEGAS, April 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Empowered Products, Inc. (EMPO), an emerging leader in the high-growth sexual wellness sector through its award-winning PINK® and GunOil® brands, is announcing today that CVS Caremark (CVS) has expanded, substantially, the number of stores that will carry the PINK® and GunOil® lines. CVS Caremark will now offer Empowered Products' most-popular items – GunOil® Silicone and GunOil® H20 from its men's line and PINK® Silicone and PINK® Water from its women's line – at more than 5,000 CVS Pharmacy locations across the United States.
Scott Fraser, president and CEO of Empowered Products, added, "This substantial expansion of our shelf space with national retail powerhouse CVS Caremark is an important indicator of the growing demand in the mainstream consumer market segment for high-quality personal lubricants. Ten years ago, personal lubricants were primarily available in adult product venues. The growth and demand for our GunOil® and PINK® lines within the national retail chain sector began about 15 months ago, and today our products are available at CVS, Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and online at Target.com."
All EMPO shareholders are encouraged to review our progress into the national chains at this link:
