East Coast Rite Aids stock up emergency supplies in preparation of Hurricane Earl

CAMP HILL, Pa. Rite Aid stores along the East Coast have stocked up on such supplies as bottled water, batteries, flashlights, small lanterns, candles, film and one-time-use cameras useful for insurance purposes, duct tape and masking tape, coolers, canned foods and other emergency provisions to help residents plan ahead for possible effects of Hurricane Earl.

Many Rite Aid stores also have emergency generators on stand-by in case of power outages, so that the stores can keep operating if possible.

If evacuated, residents or vacationers can visit any Rite Aid location nationwide for their prescriptions. The company?s satellite-linked computer network assures that a complete customer prescription history will be available at any Rite Aid store.
