Mission Viejo Walgreen’s closed

I heard it had something to do with the lease, but just hearsay.  The store location is at the Sprout’s/Claim Jumper shopping center at Marguerite Pkwy & Santa Marguerita Parkway.

Are you aware of NextDoor.com for specific communities or those nearby?

screen-shot-2013-02-11-at-10-06-39-pmNextdoor allows neighborhoods to easily create private websites allowing communication among neighbors and make them stronger and safer.  Nextdoor is strictly about connecting with the people who live around you. When you sign up, you must input your real name and address. And you must verify that you live in the neighborhood either via credit card confirmation or by having the company send you a postcard that you can then verify you received.

I belong to active Missionviejo.nextdoor.com, and use it often as a key resource and where I share neighborhood info of interest like a new supermarket opening, days La Paws dog park will be closed for re-sodding, and I’ve posted items for sale. Others have posted about missing pets so all could be on the look-out. One pet was found by a fellow NextDoor member due to the alert on the website.

Two New Openings in north Mission Viejo

Panda Express facing Los Alisos, in the shopping center at Marguerite Parkway and Santa Margarita Parkway where there’s CVS Pharmacy, Ralph’s Market, McDonald’s, and the Pet Store Warehouse.

Also at the same intersection but across the street is a new Auto Club Office next to Petco in the Sprout’s Farmer’s Market shopping center where there’s also Yogurtland and Claim Jumper Restaurant.

And some good news for anyone who gets cold sores or canker sores, Sprout’s now carries the two problem solvers I developed over 20 years ago.  The first,  Cold Sores Begone Stick™, a chapstick that stops a cold sore from surfacing at the early warning tingle.  www.Cold Sores Begone.com.

Cold & Canker Sore Begone1.5mg

Second, Canker Sores Begone Stick™, which within 24-36 hours, heals a mouth ulcer inside the mouth (on or under tongue, inside cheeks, roof of mouth, inside lips).  www.CankerSoresBegone.com

Do you know anyone overseas who could use either remedy? We now ship international orders for which there’s a flat shipping fee of $10, maximum 5 pieces per order.  There’s a moneyback guarantee but the shipping fee is not included.  (888) 877-6315.

MIssion Viejo’s Apple Ranch Market now closed

ImageLook’s like another one’s bit the dust.  The Apple Ranch Market is now closed. They were located in the shopping center at Alicia & Jeronimo.  It’s been difficult for any business to success in that location since Coco’s Restaurant 9 or so years ago. 

Lake Mission Viejo’s Tortilla Flats, recently re-named Lago, has closed

Tortilla Flats in the Lake Mission Viejo Shopping Center, which was renamed Lago last summer, has shut their doors.  A sign on the front door reads “Due to unfortunate circumstances, the restaurant is closed”.
