Rite Aid to Sell 865 Stores to Fred's Inc.

Yesterday, Walgreens and Rite Aid announced their agreement to sell 865 Rite Aid stores to Fred’s Inc. in order to get FTC (Federal Trade Commission) approval for their merger.  This deal has not been concluded and can only be concluded as part of the overall Walgreens/Rite Aid merger. The FTC is still reviewing that merger but this announcement makes it somewhat more likely that the merger will get approval.
 
If the merger is approved, Walgreens will acquire the majority of the Rite Aid locations.
