Would You Buy Lobster At Walgreens'?

A new Walgreens' in Boston has gotten a significant amount off attention for essentially being a souped-up version of itself. The 24/7 Downtown Crossing location boasts sushi and manicures, coffee and liquor, and yes, even a pharmacy.

The pharmacy has upped the ante once more. You can now buy lobsters at Walgreens'. This, of course, begs the question: Would you buy lobster from a Walgreens'?  

This slightly odd combination got us thinking about other bizarre pairings. We did a little digging and found a store in Kentucky that sells Bibles and tires, Double Shot Liquor and Guns in Texas, a funeral home in Illinois that boasts a horror-themed mini golf course. What other bizarre combinations can you think of? Jim Braude and Margery Eagan will discuss on Boston Public Radio. Call in to the show at 877-301-8970, or weigh in in the comments section below.
