Rite Aid is closing several more locations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. They've closed a number of 37 stores, since last year.

Rite Aid says it will gradually phase out certain locations in the coming weeks, according to nbcphiladelphia.com. Rite Aid recently filed a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.

From Rite Aid's website: "As we move through this process, Rite Aid remains focused on providing leading healthcare products and services that improve the health outcomes of the nearly one million customers that we serve daily."
