City minutes: Mayor Riddle commented “Last year it was brought to my attention that the storage containers that Walgreen’s had were unsightly but there is not an ordinance that addresses that We are faced with if we don’t allow them to have the storage containers then how do they operate with the extra inventory that they must have during the holiday season.”

Wal Mart already has many storage containers along East Blvd. I do not see any difference between the two retailers as far as how unsightly they, storage containers, might be. Wal Mart’s containers are there earlier and stay later than Walgreen’s. It seems that Wal Mart has storage containers for many months before and after the Christmas selling season and many times over what Walgreen’s uses. Walgreen’s normally has two and Wal Mart several dozen; it will be interesting to see what the other cities have as far as codes.

Perhaps if they bought more American made items they could stock it in their distribution warehouses and ship as needed instead of drop shipping product to the stores in August and Sept. The bulk of that inventory sitting in the containers at Wal Mart etc. is not needed or used until after Thanksgiving or at least well after Halloween.

Wal Mart has plenty of room to fence in an area behind their store so the containers are not as visible as they are now, picture posted. At one time Walgreen’s used part of the building behind their store for storage. The storage containers look no worse than the garbage containers and trash along McDermott and the side/back loading dock area of Food Town. If the containers are a problem for some then clean the entire area up.

Walmart was talked about as well.

Walgreens already has a container at the back of their store. Hard to see around it after pulling through the pharmacy drive thru, but mostly they are an eye sore.

I guess your picture will be up soon.

It will be interesting to know how other cities handle this. Hope our city continues to pursue the issue.

I don't see it to be a big deal. It's part of doing business. Of course, if they didn't have the stuff people are looking for, then folks would probably be complaining about that, as well. It's sitting on their property and it's there to take care of the added demand, by their customers.

Wagreens will be remodeling and perhaps the container is for the construction people. I didn't see it the other day but I'm sure it will be needed soon even after the remodel. Everything is going lower, same program that Wal Mart has or is doing. Their stockroom is very small.

May be they could paint it with some nice scenery; that would help. Years ago we used the high school art students to paint our windows for Halloween, they did an excellent job. They could even do similar art that is on the storage tanks along 225. The picture was up earlier but then it disappeared? Maybe Fed Up took it?

Walgreens has a trash dumpster behind the store for the remodel.
