White Cross Drugs Closes
White Cross Drugs Closes

Listen
AIR DATE: March 9, 2012

After six decades near downtown, White Cross Drugs will be closing. The store was the first 24-hour drugstore in Las Vegas but it has been bested by the chain stores - Walgreens and CVS. So what finally did in the landmark business? And who will fill the prescriptions? Has Las Vegas just become to hard for independent businesses?
 
GUEST
Marcie Davis, former owner, White Cross Drugs
Downtown Steve, Realtor, Realty Executives
