Pharmacy giant Rite Aid has announced they are closing some of its 2,000+ stores nationwide.

Back in October 2023, Rite Aid announced that they were filing for bankruptcy protection after company officials reported the pharmacy chain had suffered "awful earnings". When court papers were filed on October 15th they verified that the chain was planning to close 150 stores across 15 states in the coming months. They added 31 stores to that list in November and just a few months later they added even more stores to the list of soon-to-be-closed stores.
