Get your Atari Games at Longs Drugs

In the 1980s everyone was getting in on the home video game craze. Even Longs Drugs, was running a sale on Atari cartridges. You could get titles like Street Racer and Hangman for as low as $16.99. Atari games being everywhere was a real treat to a video game crazed kid like me, but I can only imagine legions of parents rolling their eyes when they enter yet another store where they can be harangued about how they need to buy more games for the Atari.

Wondering what happened to all the Longs Drug stores? They were acquired by CVS, so many of them were changed into CVS. In Hawaii they are still branded as Longs.
