While driving in the field this morning I snapped a photo of a silver horse statue in the brand new Rite Aid center on the corner of Marconi Avenue and Eastern Avenue in the 95821 zip code of Sacramento. This newly constructed shopping center is located just West of Carmichael and the Rite Aid store has been open for less than two weeks.
What do you think of the horse? It’s gleaming and it’s not hard to miss, is it? Do you like it? Do you hate it? Does it add to the appeal of the retail center? Do you think it fits in with the neighborhood? Comment above if you’d like.
This horse has been dubbed by my three year old boy as “Silver” (sounds appropriate I suppose). It is certainly a landmark for the intersection now because passersby will be drawn to look at it. For reference, Wikipedia says the following of the word “landmark”: In modern usage, a landmark includes anything that is easily recognizable, such as a monument, building, or other structure.
On another note, this store is located in Sacramento, but the Rite Aid website currently says “Carmichael“. Why do you think Rite Aid has listed their store location as Carmichael? Is this similar to the 24 Hour Fitness in Rancho Cordova on Sunrise Blvd (West side of street = clearly in Rancho Cordova) saying they are located in “Gold River” when they are certainly located in Rancho Cordova?
