We’re in the process of remodeling our stores to create a new shopping experience for our customers, one that is centered on wellness. Wellness Stores demonstrate our company’s continued commitment to providing the services, products, and resources that help our customers and their families live healthy lives. Our Wellness Stores contain an expanded offering of clinical pharmacy services and health and wellness products. Plus, we’ve lowered the shelves and widened the aisles to help you better navigate our Wellness Stores. At these locations, you’ll find:
- Medication therapy management
- Consultation rooms for private discussions with a Rite Aid pharmacist
- Organic and gluten-free foods and beverages
- All-natural personal care and home care products
- GNC nutritional supplements
- Fitness and workout equipment for purchase
- Expanded wellness magazine and book sections
Wellness Ambassadors help Rite Aid deliver on our goal of providing excellent customer service and are a part of what makes our Wellness Stores unique. Wellness Ambassadors act as a bridge between the front of the store and the pharmacy, and are there to help you locate products; provide access to information on over-the-counter medications, vitamins, and supplements; and help you interact with our licensed pharmacists on a more personal level.
The next time you’re in a Rite Aid store, look for an associate in a light-blue coat with a “Wellness Ambassador” nametag. Feel free to introduce yourself, explore the information on the Wellness Ambassador’s iPad, and ask about the store’s next wellness event.
Meet Wellness Ambassador Amanda Morrison
Amanda is a Wellness Ambassador in our Toms River, New Jersey, Wellness Store. When explaining her job, Amanda says, “What it comes down to is being able to talk to the customer. You really do have to care about people. It’s a very customer-focused position.”
Amanda visits senior communities and fitness centers to discuss wellness, sets up flu clinics, and organizes monthly health fairs. “It’s really important that we get out into the community and let the community know about all the awesome things we’re doing here at Rite Aid,” she said.
Best of all, Amanda finds her job rewarding. “Every day I’m helping people,” she told us with a smile.
