More than 150 Rite Aid locations are expected to close after the Rite Aid Corporation filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this week.
As part of the process, Rite Aid expected to close underperforming stores.
In court filings submitted Monday, the company disclosed the initial 154 stores it will be closing nationwide. 31 of the 154 stores set to close are in California, with over half of those 31 located in Southern California.
It’s unclear when the Rite Aid stores are expected to close, but patients’ prescriptions are expected to be transferred to other pharmacies, the company told Insider.
Rite Aid did not immediately respond to Nexstar’s request for comment or additional information.

Rite Aid has assured customers that it is not going out of business, and will continue to serve customers in-store and online.
“We recognize the important role we play in serving you and meeting your healthcare needs, so we want to make sure you understand what this means for you,” Jeffrey S. Stein, the newly appointed CEO of Rite Aid, wrote in a letter addressed to Rite Aid customers on Sunday.
Rite Aid’s return policy will remain the same, and the stores are expected to “generally” offer the same products and selections, according to an online FAQ page concerning the Chapter 11 filing.
The Rite Aid Corporation currently runs over 2,000 stores, mostly on the East and West Coasts.
