Navarro is a Hispanic owned drug chain that has been in business for many years in the Miami-Dade area of Florida.  The names of the stores will not change due to branding and loyalty from mostly Hispanic customers.  Interesting that theimage chain also offers compounding services and a club for people with diabetes.  CVS in other recent news has been having some other issues.
