We Smell: New Blood–Er, Business

We all know that storefronts on Telegraph Avenue are a hot commodity, mainly because they are a flipflop shuffle from, well–pretty much anywhere Berkeley students might find themselves at any given time. Thus, it follows that businesses that occupy the precious real estate close to campus are, most definitely, extremely important.

Accordingly, we felt it was our duty to check out (albeit, briefly) the newly reopened Rexall Owl Drugs (or is it Owl Rexall Drugs? Or Owl Drugs Rexall?) We admit it–we weren’t around for the old pharmacy, but Yelp [2] says it kind of sucked, and was pushed O.O.B. by everyone’s favorite, Walgreen’s! Rexall Drugs 2.0 (Clarification: the new tenants of the Rexall facade, a.k.a. Sam’s Market) lacks the drugs, but now has a decent-looking deli counter, dairy products, fruit, a hefty selection of dry goods, and a truly impressive fridge section full of more varieties of root beer than we have ever seen–ever.

Prices fell somewhere between dirt cheap and Bear Market, but the, like, totally Berkeley mural on the back wall helped us overlook any monetary concerns we might have had. Oh, that, and the fact that they sell brownie mix and eggs will probably save us mad trips to Trader Joe’s.

A couple blocks down, we greatly anticipate the opening of what could possibly become the next McDonald’s–Moo … licious [4]! Alright, maybe not, since people don’t seem to enjoy things that don’t cause heart disease. Moo … licious might actually have a shot at success, nonetheless, since Nutella is involved. Cereal in general is pretty de … licious. We just hope they stay open late, because we can say with a fair degree of certainty that cereal is especially grr-eat when you’re, uh, craving a little midnight snack, if you catch our drift …
