9 local Rite Aid stores set to close after company files bankruptcy

PITTSBURGH — Nine Rite Aid stores in western Pennsylvania are set to close.

The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy earlier this week, saying falling sales and opioid-related lawsuits led to the filing.

Rite Aid has assured customers that it is not going out of business, and prescriptions filled at the stores slated to close will be transferred.

The company said they have a turnaround strategy and are confident in their future.

The stores closing in our area are:

  • 700 Stevenson Blvd., New Kensington
