More than 25 years after Target stopped selling cigarettes, Walmart has decided to follow suit by ending tobacco sales -- at least at some of the retail chain's locations.

Walmart officials have announced plans to stop selling smokes in stores located in such states as California, Florida, Arkansas and New Mexico.

"We are always looking at ways to meet our customers’ needs while still operating an efficient business," reads a statement released Monday by Walmart officials.

Rival retailers Target and CVS have already put an end to cigarette sales, with Target clearing out its tobacco products back in 1996 -- and CVS doing the same in 2014.
