Just Say No to CVS

This is getting stupid. CVS is trying to muscle in on the drug store market in St. Louis, and the end result will be empty, suburban style buildings as corners are loaded with two drug stores. Years ago, people thought Walgreen's push to build new stores was an effort to block the market for CVS. Obviously, CVS is trying what it has done in other cities and that is the building of new drugstores across the street from healthy competitors. There are tons of other options instead of Walgreens in St. Louis; they're called independent drugstores, and they're located around the corner from you. Read about it here and here. Pictured here is the CVS construction site at Gravois and Loughborough.
