About Rite Aid:

Rite Aid Corporation is a drugstore chain in the United States and a Fortune 500 company. It is headquartered in East Pennsboro Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, near Harrisburg. Rite Aid is the largest drugstore chain on the East Coast and the third largest in the U.S.

Rite Aid began in 1962, opening its first store in Scranton, Pennsylvania; it was called Thrift D Discount Center. After several years of growth, Rite Aid adopted its current name and debuted as a public company in 1968. As of 2017, Rite Aid is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol RAD. Its major competitors are CVS and Walgreens. In late 2015, Walgreens announced that it would acquire Rite Aid for $9.4 billion pending approval. However, on June 29, 2017, over fear of antitrust regulations, Walgreens Boots Alliance announced it would buy roughly half of Rite Aid’s stores for $5.18 billion. On September 19, 2017, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) approved a fourth deal agreement to purchase Rite Aid with 1,932 stores for $4.38 billion total.

 

 

One thought on “Rite Aid Terminations/Layoffs

  1. Rite Aid’s brand-new CIO announced the layoff of hundreds of IT employees in multiple departments as a result of outsourcing to HCL Technologies. Nice touch, the last day for IT workers is the week before Thanksgiving, November 22, 2019.
