That is not a bad thing - it looks like an improvement. I'd rather see a space age transport station next to Johnnies - than some beat up old toyota tercels next to the old 99cent store :)

bet mr. 99c owner is happy bout that development.
I'm gonna keep on the run... I'm gonna have me some fun if it costs me my very last dime.
If I wind up broke up, well, I'll always remember that I had a swingin' time
