I actually flew up without needed homestuff for the condo I rented, so I expected to see 5000 CVSes everywhere. Surprisingly, I am just north of the Verizon Center and walked a good 8 blocks west with no CVS in sight!
It is pretty sad the amount of franchises though. 90% of places in the city seem to be horrible mall franchises.
Last note, will be attending the Raptors game tomorrow for old times sake.
There are CVS stores literally everywhere now.
I stopped keeping count a long time ago.
As far as the horrible mall franchises you speak of...
THEY ARE ALL SH*T!
The city has turned into sh*t!
I cant believe they have the nerve to charge people higher rents for all of this sh*t!
I can go to the gulf coast right now and buy a 2 bedroom condo for around 40-50k and have all of those same exact mall stores less than a 1 mile drive away from me plus have year round nice weather for boating, fishing, jet skiing and surfing.
I think I just might do that too. Sooner rather than later.
