PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After years of planning, Rite Aid has officially moved its headquarters from Cumberland County to Philadelphia -with a whole new set-up. The company opened its Collaboration Center at The Navy Yard in South Philadelphia on Wednesday.
Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and other dignitaries attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11 a.m.
Rite Aid's President and CEO says the new location was built to support the company's emphasis on remote work.
"This is not an office, this is a collaboration center. There is actually no one that works here on a full-time basis nor is there anyone else here that has an assigned office," Rite Aid President and CEO Heyward Donigan said.
Members from Rite Aid's various businesses, including Rite Aid retail pharmacy, Elixir, Health Dialog and Bartell Drugs, will be able to use the space to meet, collaborate and engage clients and partners.
Rite Aid's CEO said the company's focus on remote work began well before the COVID pandemic. She said it attracts a more diverse workforce of top talent from all over.
