Amazing similarity after 62 years (except for those two huge trees).
And still, an adjacent automotive business!

In Europe, the drug stores sell over-the-counter drugs and prescription drugs. Today, here in Toronto, they sell milk, candy, make-up,....

Actually, the "beyond drugs" idea was probably born in Paris with the postwar "Le Drugstore" concept.
