Yet another Valley Rite Aid location has announced its closure with its last day of business being early next week.

According to a media representative for Rite Aid, the company's location in Sharpsville will be closing next week with its last day of business being January 16. Following the closure, customers are being redirected to the company's Hermitage location at 1851 East State Street.
