Wal Marts containers are there earlier and stay later than Walgreens. It seems that Wal Mart has storage containers for many months before and after the Christmas selling season and many times over what Walgreens uses. Walgreens 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 Walgreens 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.

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.
