On the Corner of . . .

Laramie, WY
June 2017
I'm sure you've heard the advertisement about Walgreens being on the corner of "Happy" and "Healthy."

Because my surgery was over 200 miles from my home, I knew I'd need to pick up some medication before heading home. Marilyn, Brenda and I sought out the location of the nearest Walgreens Pharmacy, and what we found was an oddity.

It appears that corner real estate in Laramie, WY (near the University of Wyoming) is hard to obtain: the Walgreens is just that - a pharmacy only. Thus, in Laramie, it appears that Walgreens is only on the corner of "Healthy."


  1. Determined to maintain that "corner" identity I guess. We have a similar new pharmacy that popped up in our neighborhood last year - Lewis Drug. Usually a big store just like Walgreens, but this one is just a pharmacy. And only 2 blocks from Shopko, which also has a pharmacy.

  2. Ha! I've never seen one that is just a pharmacy (or a CVS, Rite Aid, etc. that are just pharmacies). But, they are on the corner!!

  3. That is funny! I've never seen a Walgreens like that. And come to think of it, all of them here on the corner.

  4. Better that than just Happy!!! Glad you found it.

  5. Too funny. I remember visiting Tampa years ago and there would be a CVS and Walgreens on every corner. Or at least it seems that way to me. Now I see the same thing in my own neck of the woods. We Americans must use a tremendous amount of prescription drugs to make both of these stores viable when they are so close to each other.

  6. Interesting. My fondest memory of Walgreens was when I was a little girl, and the dr gave every kid a "coupon" for a free milkshake at Walgreens after every appt.

    You know, back when drugstores had soda fountains ... :-)

  7. I had no idea you had to travel so far for surgery. Just as well you thought things through re medication. Nice that Walgreens could deliver a surprise re their location.

  8. Really, seems like they don't follow the corporate catch phrase! I know what you mean about being far from home for surgery :(

  9. Didn't even know there were Walgreen's that didn't have everything under the sun ... even stuff you didn't know you needed.

  10. What a funny little shop! Glad it had what you needed, though!
