Rite Aid has been an interesting tenant to follow over the last few years. Walgreens and Rite Aid entered into a merger agreement in October of 2015 before terminating the agreement in June of 2017 over mounting doubt the FTC would approve the action. Walgreens and Rite Aid announced a replacement to the deal whereby Walgreens would acquire 2,186 stores from Rite Aid for $5.175 billion. In September, this was amended to 1,932 locations at $4.375 billion. The agreement closed this past spring and all of the stores are expected by to fully integrated into Walgreens by the end of 2020.
