Drug (Store) Madness
And other west-side retail news
The west side is bulging with pharmacies. A derelict Kentucky Fried Chicken went under the wrecking ball in January (along with adjacent Schlotsky's, vacant since 2003) to make room for a Walgreens. Walgreens will join RiteAid (Westgate), the Village Pharmacy II and Kmart pharmacy (both in Maple Village), the pharmacy at Kroger, and the CVS at Liberty and Stadium to make six drugstores within half a mile. It would have been seven, but Plum Market recently closed its pharmacy, which had included homeopathic remedies.
