The Rite Aid acquisition of Eckerd's is official. http://www.riteaid.com/company/news/news_details.jsf?itemNumber=928
The only store it affects in FoHi is the Eckerd on 75th and QB. The press release says to expect it to be remodeled and rebranded as a Rite-Aid by March 2008. The press release doesn't say if more than one damned cashier will be open after the transition.
