I only have one at the moment. There's this nationwide-known drugstore in the Philippines called Mercury Drugstore. I'll edit and add more once I think of more...
Edit: Odyssey Shipping Lines, Daedalus Laboratory Surplus, Medusa's Salon. You know, this is very easy if you really know your mythology
