included a story about how dahl pharmacy is closing "due to a buyout by Walgreens, which is building in the city." My hometown's pharmacy will be replaced by a freaking Walgreens
.Family pharmacy to close business after more than 100 years.
That's so sad. Dahl's is where we always got our prescriptions. My aunt Loretta worked there for, like, 20 years or something. She hooked me up with the promo display for Debbie Gibson's perfume, Electric Blue
. Dahl's is where we used to walk to for $.01 tootsie rolls and magazines.
It's just sad that anyplace with any character has to close to make way for the chains. You can't tell me that Walgreens is going to have a fish tank with ridiculously large goldfish to watch while you're waiting for your prescription. Sadness.
Ah well, I guess this is what I get for daring to google (news) my hometown.Huh.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viroqua,_Wisconsin
