Works for me! Hope so.

Any idea what new places may be going in the vacancies where Walmart Market is going in?

Eckerd remains vacant. I do not know if that is being absorbed into Walmart Neighborhood Market though.

Not because I don't like them but because I have never really had the chance to try and experience them. Neue sounds excellent though. Definitely gonna have to try it. Oh and oddly enough, I am watching a show on the Food Network right now regarding food trucks.

I am not sure that Rite Aid has maintained the business that Eckerd once had. Seems like Walgreen's and CVS are taking over. And I remember when all the Eckerd's had lunch counters. And Walgreen's in Fla also used to have lunch counters years ago before they moved up here.

There was a Walgreen's in Bel Air Mall in Mobile, AL with a lunch counter when I was growing up. And a Woolworth's in the mall with a full diner, with imitation "outdoor" seating open to the mall.

I remember up through the early 1990s Eckerd having breakfast/lunch diners at McAlister Square and Wade Hampton Mall.

tylerSC, I will agree Rite Aid has not kept the business Eckerd had. After Rite Aid acquired and absorbed Eckerd by 2007, several stores went downhill, which would close around 2010.

The current Walgreen's TV commercial takes a nostalgic look at the old stores which featured soda fountains/lunch counters. Somehow in the 90's all drug stores seemed to abandon the lunch counter concept ... And the Eckerd stores were nice and well liked. Somehow they started to lose business to CVS and Walgreen's, and Rite Aid was never able to recover after that. Many Rite Aid stores are now Family Dollar stores.

Sadly for Walgreen's, CVS and other retail pharmacy chain, the industry became competitive six years ago after Walmart introduced the generic drug pricing concept.

Have to say, I love CVS's Minute Clinics concept!

Bi-Lo tried a similar in-store medical clinic concept with Wellspot six years ago. The concept failed within a year.
