Rite Aid to Build 900,000 SF Facility in Spartanburg


rite aid scHundreds of new jobs are coming to the Upstate. Rite Aid Corporation announced plans to build a 900,000-square-foot distribution center in Spartanburg. Officials say the new center will employ nearly 600 people after it becomes fully operational and is a $90 million investment.

“Spartanburg is an ideal location for our new distribution center. We thank the state of South Carolina for their cooperation and support during our site selection process, and we look forward to breaking ground on our new facility, which will help us to further optimize our supply chain and better serve our stores and customers across the Southeast,” said Rite Aid Chairman and CEO John Standley. The center will support the inventory and fulfillment needs of approximately 1,000 Rite Aid stores in the southeastern United States, officials said.

In April 2014, Rite Aid officials said they announced a plan to consolidate three of its existing distribution centers, located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Poca, West Virginia., into one new facility. They said the new site along the I-85 corridor offers easy access to markets across the southeast.

Information on employment opportunities at Rite Aid’s new facility in Spartanburg will be made available in the second half of 2015.
