How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Despite the fact that the staff at Duane Reade often resembles a rowdy group of ex-cons, I still love it. Growing up in New York allows me to have unnatural attachments to certain things, like the ability to check how much money is on my metro card before boarding the subway, the over abundance of carbohydrates, and Duane Reade. Its just one of those places that have everything you need. This is how people in the suburbs must feel about Wal-Mart. I guess the main difference is that Duane Reade doesnt sell clothes, but lets face it, what self-respecting New Yorker would buy clothes at the same place they buy their toilet paper and birth control. But I digress. Where else can you go at 11:30 at night and buy cheese-less pizza, beer, and allergy medicine? Duane Reade. The term convenience store has never made more sense. I get warm and fuzzy inside when I think about it. Maybe everything is ridiculously overpriced. Get over it. Thats the price you pay for convenience, and for living in Manhattan. Maybe their version of a bonus program is completely unrewarding. So what. Do you ever actually use the coupons that CVS gives you before they expire? I think not. And whats more classic, more New York than shopping at a store that was literally named after the two streets on which the original intersected? Duane Reade, like the wonderful city you represent, you will always have my heart.
