Rite Aid to shutter 53 more stores across 9 states

Rite Aid is reportedly closing stores in California, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Virginia, per a report in The Hill.

Rite Aid will close 53 more store locations across nine states, adding to the approximately 200 it has closed since filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last year, per a report in The Hill.

After filing for bankruptcy protection in mid-October, Rite Aid announced the closures of more than 150 stores across 15 states. In late November, the retailer announced the closures of another 31 stores. More stores were closed at the beginning of this year.

A Rite Aid spokesperson provided Drug Store News with the following statement:

"Rite Aid regularly assesses its retail footprint to ensure we’re operating efficiently while meeting the needs of our customers, communities, associates and overall business. In connection with the court-supervised process, we notified the Court of certain underperforming stores we are closing to further reduce rent expense and strengthen overall financial performance. At this time, we have not made or confirmed any decisions on additional specific store closures as part of our financial restructuring process." 

The company added:

  • The decision to close a store is not one we take lightly. The Company, with the assistance of its advisors, carefully considers various factors in its decision-making, including business strategy, lease and rent considerations, local business conditions and viability, and store performance.
  • For our customers, we make every effort to ensure they have access to pharmacy-based health services, whether at another Rite Aid or other nearby pharmacy, and we work to seamlessly transfer their prescriptions to ensure there is no disruption of service.
  • For our associates, we strive to transfer them to other Rite Aid locations where possible. In fact, approximately 75% of our associates have accepted opportunities to transfer locations if their store has been or is part of the ongoing store closures.
