Rite Aid Stores Merge on Greenpoint Ave.

Rite Aid is finally merging its two stores on Greenpoint Ave.

In June 2007, Rite Aid Corp. acquired Eckerd Corp., at a time when Eckerd had a store next door to Rite Aid.

While Rite Aid may have replaced the Eckerd name, the two stores have operated independently. However, that’s about to change. During the next few weeks, sources said, the interior wall that separates the two drug stores will be demolished and the aisles in the two stores widened. The two pharmacies will be combined into one.

Job losses are not expected to be significant, since the combined store will be come a 24hr operation. Currently both stores close in the evening.

Nice to hear they will be 24 hours. Hopefully the can improve – right now both stores are pretty weak.
