With one Walgreens and two Longs stores in town already, does this mean that San Carlos may end up with 3 Walgreen’s stores?????   Even their logos are similar!

(More than likely, it will mean one or two fewer drug stores, and more empty buildings to fill.)   This should be interesting.  Check out this article from Reuters for more details…

  • An interesting point was made by a blog reader: If Washington Mutual is taken over by one of the financial institutions that already resides on Laurel Street, a similar situation could exist like the Walgreens/Longs situation…. Great point!
