YAKIMA, Wa - Rite Aid will take over Longs Drugs in Yakima. Longs announced last month that they were closing up shop in Washington. But now, they say some stores will continue under a new name.
A spokesperson for Rite Aid says a deal with Longs Drugs to take over some stores in the state should be done some time in May, but they don't know when the official name change will take place.
She said that all present employees at the store in Yakima will more than likely be kept on staff.
