Bankrupt Rite Aid closing West Side Youngstown location
Rite Aid is closing another location in the Valley as part of its bankruptcy organization.
According to a court document, the pharmacy chain is shutting the store at Mahoning and Schenley Avenues on Youngstown’s Westside.
When Rite Aid filed for bankruptcy last month, the initial wave of 154 closings included the location on Market Street and East Indianola Avenue in Youngstown and the New Castle Store along Wilmington Road at West Clen Moore Road.
The pharmacy chain had said there would be "going out of business" sale at each store before closing, although a 21 News videographer found the Market Street store already closed when the bankruptcy was announced.
Rite Aid said expected to announce more store closings in the future.
The store closings are part of the pharmacy chain’s bankruptcy plan to reduce debt.
