Walgreen’s does multi-story!

Walgreen’s started in Chicago with many first-floor drug stores in multi-story buildings.  They’ve grown to prefer their one-story, suburban store because they can put them up quickly and own them themselves.  However, they do very nice new stores in multi-story, mixed-use buildings when required, as this example from Orlando shows.

  1. There’s absolutely no reason why Walgreen’s shouldn’t use an urban model for a store in this location. A suburban style store negates the community’s vision and will set a negative tone for Brookhaven for decades to come. Why do we have to put up with development on the cheap? It’s time for them to join the 21st century!
