When I have traveled east to visit my folks in Indianapolis, I watched what was happening with the area drugstores taking biannual "snapshots." In the rapidly growing suburbs I saw CVS's popping up in widely dispersed areas in locations close to a lot of other stores of various types. I also watched as Walgreen's were popping up later, and they tended to be in good locations but clustered close together. They also tended to be more isolated.

Both stores had complete inventories and were easy to shop in. The CVS strategy seemed to make a lot more sense to me. CVS appears to look great on paper (to me anyways) and their practices seem to make a lot of sense. That is why I bought them about 9 months ago. I have not been disappointed (yet). :-)
