According to NJ.com and the Wall Street Journal, the Rite Aid pharmacy chain is shuttering 400 to 500 stores across the country due to its debt and bankruptcy.

A Closer Look

With over $3.3 billion in debt, as documented by Forbes.com, Rite Aid is facing several federal lawsuits regarding its alleged oversupply of opioid.

The exact locations of the Rite Aid locations to be closed have yet to be revealed. However, the Morristown Rite Aid on 213 South Street closed suddenly, stunning employees with just a few day’s notice.


The multiple, country-wide closings of Rite Aid are indicative of the increasing economic challenges of various business operations across the U.S.
