The last thing Sacramento needs is another drugstore.  It seems like they are on every corner.  In fact, there are 20 pharmacies within 5 miles of Franklin and Sutterville.  But if you must, please find another location.  By settling on Franklin and Sutterville, you are forcing out a beloved market and a beautiful building is in jeapordy. South Sacramento is chock full of empty lots.  Franklin Blvd is full of empty storefronts and lots.  

Mercado Loco is a valuable asset to this community.  It provides fresh produce, a full butcher, prepared foods and jobs to area residents.  We would be very sad to see them go.

Please reconsider your location at this site.

      The CVS pharmacy chain has stirred up protests from about 350 Sacramento residents after it submitted plans to replace Hollywood Park’s Mercado Loco supermarket with a drugstore.

      The Sacramento Children’s Home owns the property at 3710 Franklin Blvd. where Mercado Loco is located, and the nonprofit’s chief executive, Roy Alexander, told me it is not selling the land as several residents have posted at Nextdoor.com. The Mercado Loco lease expires in a couple of years, he said, and the children’s home is seeking a new tenant.

      “When the previous tenant, the Lee family, had the Food King in there, what they did is when they left, they signed a contract lease with Mercado Loco,” Alexander said. “Basically, Mercado Loco is finishing out the term of the Food King leas

      A policy requiring the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing to obtain approval from the governor's office before pursuing discrimination claims against public agencies has compromised the department's independence and chilled investigations, state overseers said in a new report.

      Mercado Loco is staple of the community. It employes a good portion of the Mexican population that make up this area. It is on the hispanic side of 12th St and would be the nail in the coffin in alerting everyone who lives here that it now belongs to developer types like those over at Curtis Park Village. Get this garbage out of here. Who likes drug stores anyway? They trap you into overpriced goods while you wait for your prescriptions. Keep Mercado Loco so that this neighborhood can keep its cornerstone.

      Mercado Loco is a unique Sacramento institution! There are plenty of CVS pharmacies already.

      My family shops there all the time. It would be devastating to see it gone. Please don't Mercado Loco away from the community.
