The Rite Aid in my neighborhood is employed with efficient, excellent, and friendly staff that always enhances the experience of myself and other shoppers. The difference between my neighborhood's Rite Aid and a general drug store is the variety of products that the store supplies as well as the integration of international products that reflect the needs of the multi-cultured community.

Most of the individuals within my community are pretty affluent and recognized for the various jobs or positions they hold in firms and/or organizations. Most people within my neighborhood are lawyers, business executives, and teachers.
Arlington is pretty flat, so natural disasters like tornados are hard to come by. Being near the bay, hurricanes are likely to cause a problem and there are frequent thunderstorms in spring and summer. The seasons have the significant traits, but can be a little more extreme each year in temperature.
