Sailor Babo went to Everybody’s Records over the weekend. He was very excited to browse through the stacks and buy some new music. Look how happy he was on his way in:
But then Sailor Babo heard some bad news while he was in the store. He heard that Walgreens is trying to buy up the property on the corner of Ridge and Montgomery roads so they can knock down all the small businesses and build a new drug store on the spot. Sailor Babo’s favorite record store would get knocked over!
If that’s not bad enough, Sailor Babo quickly remembered that there’s already a Walgreens in the Pleasant Ridge business district. It’s on the exact same block about 100 yards down! Walgreens doesn’t like their current store anymore and wants to build a new one at the slightly better location. They don’t care about the neighborhood or the businesses they’d displace. They just want to sell drugs. Boo to that!
Hearing this made Sailor Babo so sick that he actually turned green!
