Rite Aid opened a new store at 3250 S. Eagle Rd. near Victory. 

The store was built by Datum Construction, which shared the above photo of the store under construction on Facebook. 

The store held a grand opening even on February 4.  

If the merger between Walgreens and Rite Aid gains government approval, the chains have said they will divest at least 865 stores nationwide, though the deal is proving to be a bumpy one to complete.
