There are several Walgreens stores here in Colorado that were former Longs Drugs stores. One notable example is found in Fort Collins, Colorado in a shopping plaza at Lemay and Riverside near an Albertsons (which is still operating; the last time I recall going there was a couple months ago).

"Savings Place".
Sounds like a great name for this font. I plan to convert it from this Illustrator drawing to a TrueType font over the weekend.
