SOLON, Ohio — Rite Aid will host its inaugural Clean, Green, and Better for You virtual product summit on July 29 to meet with product suppliers across food and beverage, health and beauty care, and general merchandise categories that support whole health and include clean ingredients.
“Providing a compelling selection of products that are aligned to whole health is an important part of our RxEvolution, and we are proud to continue updating our mix to appeal to consumers who are conscious of the types of products they bring to their homes and families,” said Erik Keptner, chief marketing and merchandising officer, Rite Aid. “We’re excited to meet suppliers who share our commitment to products that consumers can feel good about.”
The drugstore chain is working with ECRM and RangeMe to source suppliers and host the summit. Applications can be submitted via RangeMe through Sunday, June 27.
