Rite Aid Will Close 19 Stores In Michigan After Filing Bankruptcy
On Monday, Rite Aid announced that 150 locations will be closing as a part of its Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
Rite Aid shared with Business Insider that before closing its stores, it considered a lot of different factors,
"including business strategy, lease and rent considerations, local business conditions and viability, and store performance."
Why is Rite Aid Closing?
