Rite Aid acquired the North Canon Drive location through the Company’s acquisition of the Thrifty PayLess drugstore chain in 1996. The location recently underwent a complete remodel, making it the first Rite Aid to feature a new version of Rite Aid’s wellness store format. The scope of the project included a total remodel and enlargement of the pharmacy, the redesign of several key departments, including beauty and over-the-counter medicines, and the addition of a Fresh Day Café and patio area, where customers can enjoy Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf beverages, fresh baked goods, sandwiches and Rite Aid’s very own Thrifty ice cream.

On Monday, June 23, Rite Aid executives will host a press conference and official ribbon-cutting ceremony at the store to celebrate the grand re-opening.

Rite Aid Corporation is one of the nation’s leading drugstore chains with nearly 4,600 stores in 31 states and the District of Columbia and fiscal 2014 annual revenues of $25.5 billion.
