Bob Peterson owned Bob's Rosemead Pharmacy at an earlier location one block east at the corner of Rosemead and Valley, at 9001 Valley Boulevard, where the Citibank is currently located. As early as 1953, Rosemead Pharmacy advertised in the paper, along with dozens and dozens of independent pharmacies.

|Jenkin's Carpets, at 1841 So. San Gabriel Boulevard was a store that was easy to overlook.|
|Until recently this San Gabriel store, long having been at this location, was still open for business.|
This store was easy to bypass. There were plenty of store windows, but the store exterior lacked appeal. I shopped here in the early 1980s for beige mini-blinds. In those years neither Home Depot nor 3-Day Blinds existed. Maybe the store is just getting a face-lift.
