Eric Harkreader, public relations spokesman for Rite Aid Corporation, has confirmed that a new Rite Aid is in store for New Martinsville. Here crews work on demolishing buildings on state Route 2 in New Martinsville between Russell Avenue and Witten Lane.
The current store will be relocated but "larger and more accessible." said Harkreader. He further reports, "Rite Aid is working with a developer to build a stand-alone building in our latest store design in exchange for a long-term lease."
Plans are on track to break ground as early as this spring, Harkreader said, barring any delays from weather or other factors "outside our control."
More details will be available about the store as it gets closer to opening. (Photo by Amy Witschey)
