Hollin Hall Rite Aid prepares for New Year’s conversion to Walgreens

The last remaining Rite Aid located near the Richmond Highway corridor soon will complete its transformation into a Walgreens.

Located in the Hollin Hall Shopping Center at 7968 Fort Hunt Road (see map), the store currently is selling most of its inventory at 50 to 70 percent off before undergoing remodeling from January 5-9. Although the store will be closed during that time, its pharmacy — already run by Walgreens — will remain open. The revamped store is scheduled to reopen January 10.

Rite Aid staff members will continue working at the Hollin Hall location after the name change, according to a Rite Aid employee. 

The conversion of the Hollin Hall Rite Aid follows the closure earlier this year of the Rite Aid at Aldi Shopping Center and the June 2018 closure of the store at Beacon Hill.

Walgreens purchased nearly 2,000 Rite Aid stores in 2018 following a failed merger between the two companies. Rite Aid still operates close to 2,500 locations nationwide.
