WAG in Santa Rosa, CA.
My dad said the
place was "dead."
So let's see.....
MY LIST OF NEW,DEAD, WAG
As I said I have not seen one of
the stores yet on the inside, but I will say that
they look nice on the outside. If WAG is going to be
expanding so rapidly, I think that they should concentrate
on getting good locations.... not ones right next to
another drug store.
I agree. Now, although I'm just a wee bit bullish
on WAG, you're still my favorite devil's advocate.
Zippy, I misinterpreted your K-Mart statement too...it
was a simple mistake anyone could make. If anyone
needs an example of "malicious," hop on over to bank
boards ...name calling, a hate monger, racial slurs,
threats and then some. I'll take the Devil's Advocate any
For decades, WAG has accomplished solid growth
exceeding the S&P 500 on a consistent basis. WAG's balance
sheet also looks quite sound as its long-term debt has
been kept in check.
Revenues are increasing and WAG
is expanding its operations at a moderate
Barron's also rated WAG as one of the elite growth stocks
in an issue earlier this year. So, to answer your
question, WAG locates its stores in areas and performs
admirably on the balance sheet and on Wall Street.
Obviously, WAG management knows something that you do not
know. Can you imagine that!
Well, I cannot say anthing
about the stores you mentioned, but Walgreens just
opened a new store in my town, Wauconda, IL.
population of Wauconda is about 8000. The new store has the
following drug stores to compete with in
Walgreens is by far the most busy of the
Thanks to all who post:
Your up to the minute reports at given stores are
laughable. When did Daddy visit the stores? If it was during
the week at ten in the morning I would expect it to
be dead. Maybe you ought to spread your wings a bit
and ask Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Jethro to check
out the stores in their locales. You know, get a
bigger sample size (I'm sure you're a wizard on
statistical sampling and will be able to predict the failure
rate of new WAG stores). Oh, and by the way, WAG has
always located new stores just down the street from the
competition. You see son, the idea here is that when you have
a superior product, you will beat the competition.
Do you think Wal Mart executives bit their
fingernails down to the quick when they opened new stores
right next to those beautiful K-Marts? I think
Well, that will do it for today's lesson. See you soon.
Don't let zippy hurt your feelings,
WAG is putting up several stores in the southeast
Michigan market. However, on one of their beautiful
locations on a busy intersection corner, both signs outside
are missing their letters (when lit at night). One
side of the store has the "W" and "n" not lit up, and
the other side as the letters "a" and "e" not lit up
Storewander, tell your father to let WAG in
that market know about this! Thanks.
WAG needs to realize that out here, if they build
a freestanding store next to a successful Longs or
Rite Aid they will fail and Long's or Rite Aid or
whatever will continue to be successful. I realize that
WAG is the most successful drug chain. They ahve high
sales pre store rate. I forsee two things with all the
1: Sales per store will go
2: They will just shut 'em down 2 or 3 years after
