FILE - Signs are taped to the entrance of a recently closed Rite Aid store in the Brooklyn borough of New York on Friday, Feb. 9, 2024. A similar sign hangs on the door of the "Moshannon Valley Pharmacy" in Snow Shoe, telling patients their prescriptions have been moved to the CVS in Bellefonte. That pharmacy closed in 2020.
