American retail and pharmacy corporation CVS is making moves to position itself on the metaverse as a major drugstore and health services company.
The pharmacy corporation registered trademark filings with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to offer prescription drugs and health products in the virtual world.
According to the filling, the virtual drugstore will offer “prescription drugs, health, wellness, beauty and personal care products and general merchandise for use online and in online virtual worlds.”
CVS filed its application on February 28, but the U.S. Patent Office made it public on its website on Friday, March 4.
