Rite Aid is closing its drugstore at Mondawmin Mall, likely early next week, becoming the latest retailer to leave the Northwest Baltimore shopping center.
The drugstore chain’s lease with the mall has ended, a spokeswoman for mall owner Brookfield Properties said Thursday.
Merchandise had been cleared from about half the store as of Thursday, when all items were being sold at a 70 percent discount. A store sign said the pharmacy had closed and records were being transferred to Walgreens at 3801 Liberty Heights Avenue.
The Rite Aid, a longtime tenant in the mall, was one of the stores acquired by Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc., when Walgreens reached a $17 billion deal in 2015 to take over nearly half of Rite Aid’s stores. Representatives of Walgreens could not be reached on Thursday.
