Re: Chains with two stores very close to each other

While not a full fledged grocery store, Walgreen's had two store across the Harlem Ave (Chicago area) from each other throughout the 80's. One was next to the Dominick's in the Norridge Commons, the other was on the south end of the Harlem-Irving Plaza.

Re: harlem / foster

The gas station on that corner was an ARCO with a AM/PM mini-mart back in the mid 80's. I remember it as being popular back with the local kids (myself included). When ARCO left the Chicago area, AM/PM went with it. The gas station itself was torn down around 5 years ago.
