Just what we need, another chain store!....As if Puerto rico doesn't have enough of them..400 jobs?....Yeah, we've heard it all before. Puerto rico is the most consumer driven society in the U.S.A.....More 'good ol' exploitation for ya!....Why not, what the hell, might as well keep the ball running?!.......

Educate yourself. The American franchises in Puerto Rico make enormous profits. The Walmart store in Carolina Puerto Rico is one of the most profitable in all of the United States, if not THE most profitable. The same can be said with the KMart store. Puerto Ricans are have been bitten by the consumerism bug and plastic card fever much like their mainland counterparts.

Well CVS just opened up, and the sales, the location the parking, and I am talking about the one in Fajardo, makes you go running back to walgreens, so far CVS havent been able to compete.
