Walgreens to Take Over More Rite Aid Drugstores
According to USA Today, Walgreens is going to take over more Rite Aid drugstores, though not as many as it wanted.
Walgreens agreed to buy about 250 fewer stores from Rite Aid than it had previously planned to acquire.
Walgreens said Tuesday it had received the government's sign-off to take over 1,932 Rite Aid stores and three distribution centers.
Walgreens said it would slowly convert the acquired stores into its own brand. The locations are primarily in the Northeast and South.
