So...Long

Longs Drugs.


The Longs era is over.

The sale of Longs Drugs Stores Corp., the 70-year-old chain based in Walnut Creek, to the East Coast's giant CVS Caremark Corp., spells the end for the last major regional chain drugstore in the country. After the transaction closes at the end of the year, CVS will slowly start converting the stores, and the Longs name will fade into retail history. - SFGate


We'll see if they close the Longs Drugs in downtown Santa Barbara, as it takes up a good amount of space in the ever increasingly unaffordable drag strip known as State Street.

I'm sad to hear this. There is nothing like an old fashioned drug store!
