24 Hour Pharmacies


Although many GPS units come loaded with millions of Points of Interest (POI, my Garmin 765T did not produce any results using "24 hour" or "twenty four" for a pharmacy that was open 24 hours a day.

I am a grandfather of two month old twin girls and I recall, both with my own kids and my other grandchildren, needing to find a pharmacy in the middle of the night. So, I created a POI file for my hometown and uploaded it to the site.

I am hopefull that other members will take the time to do the same thing for their area OR, even better, if the maintainer of Walgreens, CVS etc. POI files know how to get those national chains to provide all of the locations of their 24 hour stores.

I also note that there is only one "24 hour Vet" in my area. I remember having to find one of them in the middle of the night. I know many people whose pets are their "kids". Vets that are open 24 hours a day would be good to know for people traveling with their pets.

Hopefully, others will take up this challenge for their areas.
