As of 2016, Rite Aid operated a total of 4,561 stores across the United States. Rite Aid generated approximately 30.74 billion U.S. dollars in total revenue for that same year. Prescription drugs covered the most with around 69.1 percent of the company’s sales share for that year. Each month, roughly 30 million people in the U.S. purchase items from Rite Aid that include Rx, non-Rx, and health and beauty products.
In what would become a merger between two of the three leading pharmacy chains in the United States, Walgreens is working on acquiring Rite Aid in a deal valued at over 9 billion U.S. dollars
