LOS ANGELES - Rite Aid filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday, Oct. 16, prompting an initial round of store closure announcements nationwide.
The company said Rite Aid stores will continue to fill prescriptions, and customers will still be able to visit its locations or shop online while it goes through its voluntary Chapter 11 process. However, this process also will allow it to speed up its plan to close underperforming stores.
In this initial round of closures, Rite Aid plans to shutter 154 stores across the country, including 31 across California, according to court documents.
While a specific timeline for the closures was not provided, the following LA and Orange County Rite Aid stores are set to close:
