Toledo Celebrates Opening Of Drug Store Number 5,000

(Toledo, OH) The opening last week of a new Walgreen's at Secor and Alexis put Toledo over the 5,000 mark in big box drugstores, according to city development officials.

"We will not rest until there is a Rite-Aid or Walgreen's within 50 feet of every resident," said Toledo Mayor Jack Ford. "These new buildings provide jobs to construction industry workers, and each one employs six or seven minimum wage workers."

Ford downplayed the fact that most of these buildings wind up vacant.

"Look, my job is to promote employment," he said. "Somebody has to tear these dumps down, right? If we keep building and demolishing big box drug stores, the local construction industry will never lack work."

Local resident Phyllis Schlacter expressed dissatisfaction with Ford's vision.

"There are just too many of these places," she said. "Besides, they never have those cute little dancing pandas like Dollar Giant."

I like dancing pandas, too.
I second the dancing pandas, no home is complete without those.

Pandas rule.

Koalas drool.
