CAMP HILL, Pa. -- October 1, 2013

In celebration of American Pharmacists Month, Rite Aid is bringing back its
popular Vote for Your Favorite Pharmacy Team Member Contest. Through the
contest, Rite Aid customers have a chance to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards
by nominating a favorite member of their Rite Aid pharmacy team. The contest,
now in its tenth year, was designed to recognize Rite Aid pharmacy associates
including pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, pharmacy cashiers and Wellness
Ambassadors, for providing excellent customer service.

“As a health and wellness destination, every day our pharmacy teams are on the
front lines, helping our customers live and stay well,” said Dan Miller, Rite
Aid senior vice president of pharmacy operations. "From the Wellness
Ambassador who helps a customer learn about the Rite Aid programs available to
help them manage their medications to the pharmacist counseling a patient on
over-the-counter medications or immunizations, our pharmacy associates are
making a difference in the health and well-being of those they serve in their
communities. We are so proud of our pharmacy teams, and this contest is a
great way for us to thank them for the top-notch service they provide to our
customers.”

From now through Oct. 31, customers can vote for their favorite pharmacy team
member via a mail-in nomination form available at any Rite Aid pharmacy or
online at www.riteaid.com/vote. Customers who vote will automatically be
entered into a random drawing to win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards. One
nominated pharmacy team member also will win $2,500 in Rite Aid gift cards
through a random drawing. For complete details and official rules, go to any
Rite Aid store or visitwww.riteaid.com/vote.

All “favorite” Rite Aid pharmacy team members will be recognized by Rite Aid
with a Favorite Pharmacy Team Member lapel pin and a letter of commendation
from Rite Aid’s Chairman and CEO John Standley.
