The Citrus Heights Rite Aid store near the corner of Auburn Boulevard and Van Maren Lane will be closing on May 8, according to ABC 10.

The news outlet reported Thursday that a company spokesperson confirmed the store at 6661 Auburn Blvd. would be closing and posted a statement from the company, which said each location is regularly reviewed for its performance.

“A decision to close a store is one we take very seriously and is based on a variety of factors including business strategy, lease and rent considerations, local business conditions and viability, and store performance,” the statement said in part.

The closure will be the second Rite Aid store in Citrus Heights to close over the past five years, with a location in the Citrus Town Center closing in 2018. The Rite Aid store at 5409 Sunrise Blvd. will remain open.
