Q-card - Another Bad Idea
I continue to wonder why?...
The City partners with Walgreen's for a $5 discount when you purchase the $25 card. Once again, city doing it's job to support another box store. I understand the money you pay will allow you entrance to sites around town, but do I really need a plastic non-green friendly "q-card" to cover my entrance fees?
Marty rolling-out another idea...
Chavez said, " (the card) gets them (we Burqueños) in the door at Walgreens because they're a great payer of gross receipts for the city of Albuquerque".
Sure they are...they're on every other street corner.
Besides, I'm still pissed Walgreen's took over "La Hacienda" on Juan Tabo and Montgomery. Funny thing is there was another Walgreen's across the street, but they felt it necessary to knock down one of the best local drive through burrito places to put up another Walgreen's in it's place. For a couple days before the "grand opening", there were two Walgreen's juxtaposed to each other. Is it just me, or does it seem Walgreen's are taking over?
Here's an idea...go to the museums, parks, zoo, gardens, etc. and pay cash or use the other plastic you already have in your wallet.
