Owl Drug Store Says Goodbye to Highland Park

by LA1 News Desk

   Tomorrow will mark the end of an era in Highland Park. Owl Drug Store, which has been owned and operated by the Cheung family since 1984, is closing up shop. Located on North Figueroa Street at Avenue 57, the neighborhood drug store will close down tomorrow, according to Mei Cheung. "It's a good thing, because there are a lot of young people moving into the neighborhood," she says. "We are too old to keep up anymore."

   Asked what kind of establishment will be there next, Mrs. Cheung says she does not yet know. "We are not selling the building," she says. "We are going to rent it out to somebody, but we are not yet sure who." One thing is for sure, the new business won't be Owl's. "We looked into keeping the business name but that won't be possible," she says.
