Thread Details

Okay, so I go to 4 CVS's in my area. I recently realized that 3 out of 4 of them have a Dry Cleaners in the strip. So this got me thinking. I've seen lots of other CVS Strips in many areas, and so so many of them have a cleaners. CVS tends to own the land their stores are on. While they do lease locations, they own most of them. A Dry Cleaners typically has trouble securing financing, bc of the chemicals used. That said, I'm starting to wonder if maybe CVS has some relaxed rules with Dry Cleaners shops and therefore they all seem to be in a CVS buildng.

So, this is my poll;

If you shop in a CVS that's freestanding with no other stores in the "strip", then this poll is not for you.

If you DO shop in a CVS that has a "strip" of other stores included in the building, then this poll is for you. Vote if there is or isn't a Cleaners in your location.

Thank you for helping me out with my 'research'.

JFYI, virtually all the stores that I have seen in Dallas/Ft Worth (20+) are freestanding stores. In fact, one of the out-of-the way strip center CVSs that I went to a few times has recently closed.

One is in a strip mall with a dry cleaners.

One is in a strip mall with no dry cleaners.

All are within 15 miles of eachother. HTH

are you not noticing how odd it is? out of the mall ones, its almsot 50/50. I mean have u ever seen a cleaners in a staples shopping center? or office depot? Or target? or anythign? yet there's this consistency with cleaners in cvs buildings. Interesting.

I can pretty much say where I live (so cal) there is generally a dry cleaners in every strip mall. That includes malls that only have Targets, CVS's, Riteaid's, etc.

I cannot see a connection between CVS's and dry cleaners, but we do have alot of dry cleaners in So Cal!!
