Michigan Communities Brace for Impact as Bankruptcy Forces Closure of Thirty-Three Pharmacies

Bankrupt pharmacy chain Rite Aid continues to close locations across the United States, and unfortunately for residents of Michigan, it has been one of the states most impacted.

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.

Of these, a massive thirty-three locations are in Michigan.
