Rite Aid Corp. today announced it will close a distribution
center this year in Bohemia,
N.Y.

The 255,000-square-foot facility, which employs 60 workers,
is expected to close in May. All employees will receive severance and
outplacement services, according to a company statement.

The center was one of six distribution centers Rite Aid
acquired in June 2007 as part of its purchase of the Brooks and Eckerd
drugstore chains. At the time of the purchase, Rite Aid said it would consider
consolidating its 14 distribution centers once the integration of the chains
was complete. The Cumberland
County firm also decided
to close the center in an effort to improve its operational efficiency.

The facility serves 125 stores. Upon its closing, the stores
will be served by larger Rite Aid distribution centers in Philadelphia
and Rome, N.Y.,
the statement said.

East Pennsboro Township-based Rite Aid shares are traded on
the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol RAD.
