Mundane

This article says that Rite Aid will be buying Eckerd - which is boring business stuff I know, but I like Eckerd - it's probably my favorite of the "drugstore" chains. Duane Reade isn't bad either, but Rite Aid has always been my least favorite - even when they were the only ones who had 5 X 7 photo albums in my neighborhood. CVS sometimes has Boots items, but not where I live. Of course, if Target came to Astoria, that would be it.

My Fforde post is coming soon.

Ew, Rite Aid! Yuck. I don't like them either; their stores are usually kinda dingy...maybe they'll get a makeover by being merged with Eckerd?

Aren't there enough Rite Aids?
Its the era of the merger...

I hate Rite Aid! Ew is right. My favorites are Eckerd, Duane Reade, CVS as far as drugstores go. But in FL there is a Walgreens everywhere-yuck.
