Customers can win $2,500 in Rite Aid Gift Cards by Recognizing Rite Aid Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians and Wellness Ambassadors for Outstanding Service and Care


CAMP HILL, Pa. (Oct. 2, 2018) - In celebration of the outstanding service provided by its pharmacy teams throughout the year, Rite Aid is giving customers the opportunity to recognize any pharmacist, pharmacy technician or wellness ambassador who has gone above and beyond in delivering exceptional health-related care to their patients.


Through Rite Aid's annual Pharmacy Champions program, held throughout October during American Pharmacists Month, customers can visit to complete an online nomination form and earn a chance to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards.


"Every day, our Rite Aid pharmacy teams deliver extraordinary care that makes a meaningful difference in the lives of our patients," said Jocelyn Konrad, Rite Aid executive vice president of pharmacy. "Whether they are counseling a customer on a new medication, participating in a local health fair or simply listening to a customer's concerns, our Rite Aid pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and wellness ambassadors are truly dedicated to serving their local communities. We could not be more proud of their efforts, and we're excited to be giving our customers the opportunity to express how much these efforts mean to them through our annual Pharmacy Champions program."


Entries will be reviewed by a panel of judges who will select six Rite Aid pharmacy team member winners, a winning Rite Aid pharmacist and a winning Rite Aid pharmacy technician or wellness ambassador from each of Rite Aid's three operating divisions, and each will receive $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards.
