Rite Aid CEO and President Heyward Donigan cuts the ribbon for the new Rite Aid Collaboration Center.
Rite Aid officially unveiled its new headquarters in Philadelphia’s Navy Yard district.
Located on the southside of the city and near the international airport, accessibility to major transportation offers teams across Rite Aid’s various businesses – including Rite Aid retail pharmacy, Elixir, Health Dialog and Bartell Drugs – space to meet, collaborate, engage clients and partners.
“This new collaboration space represents how we are modernizing our brand from the inside out,” said Heyward Donigan, Rite Aid president and CEO. “We are not only transforming our business to better serve our customers, but we are embracing new ways of working that blend a remote-first corporate workforce with opportunities for in-person collaboration.
The 23,000 square-foot Collaboration Center designed by Wynnewood-based Meyer Design features a variety of conference room styles equipped with digital Neat Boards for video conferencing, a digital/video studio, Genius Bar to support IT needs, and associate amenities including a catering kitchen, multiple food and beverage stations, a business center and a respite room for nursing, prayer and meditation. Rite Aid has entered into a long-term lease with Ensemble Real Estate Solutions for the space which can accommodate up to 300 Rite Aid associates.
Rite Aid previously had its headquarters in Camp Hill, Penn. Rite Aid opened its first store – then Thrif D Discount Center in Scranton – 60 years ago. Today, Rite Aid has 2,350 stores across 17 states, including 223 in Philadelphia and its surrounding area, and a workforce of more than 50,000
