Giant Long’s Store at 51st Closing

I have known that it was going to happen for quite a long while, but the time is finally here. This Saturday is the last day for the giant 87,000 square foot drug store will be open for business. In my mind it is always Long’s Drugs… even though it hasn’t held that moniker in years. I used to go to buy plants, potting soil, thread, school supplies, you name it. I bought my last crock pot there at 2 AM when I had a middle of the night crock pot emergency.

I have eaten many hot dogs with saurkraut at the Top Dog in the front of the store, and I have made many keys for my listings at the key copier in the lobby as well.

But alas. Saturday its all going away so that Safeway can build some new monstrosity. Check out the SFGate story about the end of an era here.
