Which chain would you say your area has an overabundance of? In the Phoenix area, I would say that Wal-Mart, Walgreens, and CVS are not in short supply.

Starbucks and McDonald's. My town of 80,000 has 5 Starbucks and 5 McDonald's. They're everywhere.

Here in NYC, Duane Reade's are everywhere. Those are only in the NYC area though I believe. In general, those kinds of drug stores can be found all over, like Rite Aid and CVS.

Atlanta = Waffle House

DFW = Whataburger

DFW + ATL = Kroger and Walmart-ville USA

Walgreens is the worst offender around here, along with Starbucks. I checked all of them because, well, there is an overabundance of all the stores you listed.

I used to live in Springfield, Missouri, a city of 150,000, and the two things they had a ton of were McDonalds and Wal-Mart.

Within a 10 mile radius there was something like 9 Wal-Marts. That comapres to 3 K Marts and 1 Target. I guess it comes with being only a few hours from their Arkansas headquarters.

In a very short stretch on the S Side of the city, they had so many McDonalds. That includes one in the mall and one just outside the mall, one in Wal-Mart and one just outside of Wal-Mart, and one in Bass Pro Shop's Outdoor World, and one just outside of it.
