SPARTANBURG COUNTY, SC (WSPA) – The Rite-Aid Distribution Center in Spartanburg County will be closing.
The facility employs more than 600 people after opening 3 years ago.
Rite Aid released this statement to 7News Thursday:
“Walgreens purchased three distribution centers – along with 1,932 stores – from Rite Aid in 2017 and has been working to integrate the acquired stores into the Walgreens brand. In line with the store integration progress and after a careful and thorough review of the Walgreens supply chain network, Walgreens has decided to close the Spartanburg facility. This decision allows Walgreens to operate a more focused network of distribution centers. We are committed to working with Walgreens to support associates and assist them in finding new employment opportunities in the best possible way.”
