New Jersey Grapples with Escalating Pharmacy Closures

Bankrupt pharmacy chain Rite Aid continues to close locations across the United States, and unfortunately for residents of New Jersey, it is one of the states most impacted. Eighteen New Jersey Rite Aid stores will be closing.

Last month, Rite Aid filed for bankruptcy after incurring $ 3.3 billion in unpaid debt. Over the past six years, Rite Aid has recorded almost $3 billion in losses and seen its stock price drop 90%.

Rite Aid operates over 2,330 stores in 17 U.S. states, but this number is rapidly declining and will soon drop below 2000. In October, as part of its bankruptcy filing, it announced that 154 locations nationwide would soon close, but this list has been added to several times and has now reached approximately 230.

The initial bankruptcy filing listed twelve locations.

  • West Milford: 3 Marshall Hill Road
  • Mantua: 210 Bridgeton Pike
  • Mullica Hill: 108 Swedesboro Road, Suite 20

The chain's struggles impact customers, and The Sun reports that some customers are experiencing delays in receiving their medications.
