12 More Rite Aid Stores Closing in Michagan. Nearly Half Are in Metro Detroit.

June 18, 2024, 3:31 PM

This Rite Aid on Woodward in Detroit closed earlier this year.

Rite Aid plans to shut down 12 more in Michigan, with nearly half in Metro Detroit, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The words surfaces as the drug store chain tries to emerge from bankruptcy in a highly competitive industry. 

The stores in Metro Detroit include:

  • 15411 Southfield Road, Allen Park
  • 107 Kercheval Ave., Grosse Pointe Farms
  • 37399 Six Mile Road, Livonia
  • 640 N. Milford Road, Milford
  • 1998 Biddle Ave., Wyandotte

The dozen Michigan stores account for less than 10 percent of Rite Aid's 186 stores in the state, the Freep reports.

In March, the Rite Aid on Woodward in Detroit's Midtown closed, likely because of theft, the Freep reports.

Frank Witsil of the Freep writes:

Rite Aid, however, is not alone in closing stores. CVS and Walgreens also have said they plan to shutter hundreds of stores after decades of expansion, in part, as they also face increasing competition and opioid lawsuits.
