So long, Longs
Ever since I moved to PV in 1986, Longs Drugs has been my favorite store in the neighborhood. It just had more charm than other drug stores close by. The drug store will still be operational under the CVS logo and floor arrangement. Of the 3 stores on the sign, only Bristol Farms Market is still going strong - I guess it's just a sign of the times.
Longs Drugs - Fate: Acquired by CVS Caremark; Founded: 1938 by Longs brothers; Defunct: 2008; Products: Pharmacy, Cosmetics, Health and Beauty Aids, General Merchandise, Snacks, 1 Hour Photo (ref. Wikipedia)
