The majority of those responding to this week’s online poll said they supported a proposed Walgreens that would feature a pick-up pharmacy window across North McDowell Boulevard from Petaluma Valley Hospital.
Here were some of the comments.
——
“A great convenience for people who are already hurting, need to get it done in a hurry, and have limited mobility.”
——
“Certainly do support it. We need a good drug store in Petaluma!”
——
“Ever see one of those Walgreens with a pickup window? Ugly blight on the landscape.”
——
“It could provide a very valuable service, especially for people who cannot make it to the pharmacy during ‘normal’ hours.”
——
“The benefit of accessibility justifies the exception.”
——
“The CVS store nearby is open until midnight and the one on East Washington is open 24 hours a day. Granted neither has a pharmacy open 24 hours, but online casino if one was needed in Petaluma, don’t you think one of them would already have it by now? This is nothing more than a plan to build anything on a piece of flood-prone property before the ridiculous Deer Creek center is built and diverts much of the flood water that once went there onto it and render it worthless.”
——
“How many pharmacies does Petaluma really need?”
——
“If we are really a community, then we must also realize that there are disabled and frail people that live in this community. Getting in and out of the car, transferring to a chair and then walking or rolling into a store to collect a prescription, for some, is a Herculean task. A drive up window would be a welcomed convenience.”
