The Boston area, like previous posters said, could definitely do without a Dunkin Donuts or a CVS on every corner. These chains are all over the place, both in the suburbs and in the heart of the city.

I'll take all of the above and then some. Customer service sux. Prices aren't that much better than Target if at all. Always too crowded. I always get a sort of nauseous feeling when I have to go there.

McDonald's doesn't count because there's supposed to be an overabundance of them in America. Mickey D's are like stoplights in this country.

Walgreens, Starbuck, Dunkin Donuts, and McDonalds. By me, those are the worst offenders.

I haven't been to a Walmart in years as there are no Walmarts by me nor am I particularly fond of the place (for reasons of business practices).

Albany, NY area has a huge concentration of Dunkin Donuts. Can't even count how many I know exactly where they are.

But this is good for me because I love DD coffee.
