CVS in Washington D.C. invents the Inconvenience Store

Instead of shelves of goods to quickly grab and purchase they now have pictures of goods you can request for purchase. How much farther does our culture need to sink? This looks like a product memorial for things that used to exist.

A CVS location in Washington DC was forced to wipe its shelves clean of toilet paper and replace them instead with framed photos of the products amid rising thefts in the country’s capital, according to a report.

If customers need to purchase any toilet paper or paper towels, they must tap a buzzer placed on the bare shelves to summon a store employee to retrieve it from a back room, according to an Instagram post from the account Washingtonian Problems.
