Rite Aid stores in three Connecticut cities will close their doors for good in December.
The pharmacies in Stamford, New Haven and Waterbury will close at the beginning of December.
The New Haven location will close on Dec. 4, and the other two locations will close on Dec. 7.
In October, the Rite Aid in Bethel was listed as one of the locations set to close as part of the company's bankruptcy process.
According to Rite Aid, the decision to close these stores was difficult. Current employees will have the option to transfer to another location.
The company says it will do everything it can to seamlessly transfer prescriptions for customers.
In a statement to News 12, a spokesperson said, "Rite Aid regularly assesses its retail footprint to ensure we are operating efficiently while meeting the needs of our customers, communities, associates and overall business. In connection with the court-supervised process, we notified the court of certain underperforming stores we are closing to further reduce rent expense and strengthen overall financial performance. At this time, we have not made or confirmed any decisions on additional specific store closures as part of our financial restructuring process."
