At 2,500 square feet, the small-concept stores are less than a quarter of the size of a typical Rite Aid store, which typically falls between 11,000 and 15,000 square feet, Rite Aid says. As Retail Leader Pro previously reported, these smaller Rite Aid locations have a full-service pharmacy and an assortment of health and wellness products that include vitamins, pain reliever, first-aid supplies, bone and jointsupport products, allergy relief and hygiene products. The stores do not offer products in the beauty, food and beverage, or household supply categories.
“We are proud to increase access to vital pharmacy services for this community, making it more attainable for people to get the medications and products they need to achieve whole health,” said Bill Miller, Rite Aid’s acting head of retail operations, in the press release. “Pharmacists play a critical role in the wellness of our communities by helping individuals understand their health conditions and staying up to date on their medications and vaccinations. Our local pharmacy team in Scottsville looks forward to becoming trusted care advisors and helping to improve health outcomes.”
