A Rite Aid on Martin Luther King Blvd. that was looted and damaged in the rioting that followed Freddie Gray’s funeral was officially reopened on Tuesday.
The former store was closed immediately following the April 27 unrest, and operated out of a temporary trailer while the new store was built. After the riots, officials warned that stolen medical information may have been among the items taken from the pharmacy and six other Rite Aid locations in the city that were looted.
The new location has a revamped interior, with the company’s “Genuine Wellbeing” store format and a direct wood-floored path to the pharmacy.
My first job was at a pharmacy in South Baltimore, where I learned that in our communities, pharmacies are survival stations for families.
