‘Retail Evolution’ Focus of Upcoming Rite Aid Annual Supplier Conference
Over a thousand supplier partners will join key members of Rite Aid’s executive and category management teams at Rite Aid’s Annual Supplier Conference to be held September 28-30 at the Hershey Lodge in Hershey, Pa.
CEO of Rite Aid Stores and President of Rite Aid Corporation Ken Martindale and other key members of the executive management team will present highlights of the past year—a year of growth—and their vision for transforming Rite Aid into a leading retail healthcare company.
They will also discuss the important role of Rite Aid’s supplier partners in helping to achieve this transformation.
Rite Aid executives will also discuss wellness+ with Plenti, the company’s revolutionary enhancement to wellness+ that launched in May—and how Rite Aid supplier partners can maximize the opportunity that Plenti offers in terms of targeting promotions to existing and new wellness+ with Plenti members.
Supplier partners will also have the opportunity to discuss exciting new promotions and meet with their respective Rite Aid category managers.
The Annual Supplier Partners of the Year and Innovative Spirit awards will be announced and conference attendees will again have the opportunity to receive a free flu shot from Rite Aid certified immunizing pharmacists.
Rite Aid supplier partners whose business name begins with A through K should arrive the evening of September 28 for a welcome reception and meetings on September 29, while those whose business name begins with L through Z should arrive the evening of September 29 for a second welcome reception and meetings on September 30. Supplier companies involved in the Supplier Advisory Board are invited to attend the fall meeting on October 1.
