This closure is part of a second phase of 17 closures that were recently announced. The first phase of more than 150 store closures was announced back in October. Rite Aid has two other locations at N. Atherton St. and Westerly Parkway in State College and one on E. Bishop St. in Bellefonte. [Centre Daily Times via Yahoo]
