Rite Aid Associate Support
Here’s how we are supporting our front line associates
We couldn’t be more proud and appreciative of how our associates are responding to this unprecedented crisis. The COVID-19 outbreak has challenged our team and our communities like never before, and all of us have been going above and beyond to stay safe and serve our customers at a time when they need us most.
We recognize that the pandemic is creating financial strain for hourly associates who work in Rite Aid’s retail locations and distribution centers. To help our associates we are doing the following.
Pandemic Pay for Rite Aid Stores, DCs and RediClinic retail locations
Our policy that ensures associates are fairly compensated if diagnosed with the virus or quarantined due to exposure.
Hero Pay for Rite Aid Stores, DCs and RediClinic retail locations
Non-management hourly associates who work in a retail Rite Aid store, RediClinic location or distribution center warehouse will receive a temporary Hero Pay increase of $2 per hour effective now.
In recognition of the heroic efforts of our retail store management, including pharmacists along with distribution center management, and RediClinic professional associates, we will be providing them with a Hero Bonus.
Temporary Increase of Associate Discount
To help our teams and families get easier, more affordable access to the products that will keep them safe, we are temporarily increasing the associate discount to 35% (from 20%) on all eligible products and services in our stores.
Our stores and distribution centers are following enhanced cleaning and sanitation protocols designed specifically to prevent the spread of all viruses, including COVID-19 and the flu. In addition to our external cleaning providers who professionally cleanse and sanitize our stores, we have increased the frequency by which our associates clean high traffic surfaces throughout the day.
Our associates are on the front lines of the Coronavirus outbreak, and we greatly appreciate all they are doing to serve those in need. Community health starts with them. Take care and stay healthy. We will get through this together.
