WEST ORANGE, NJ — West Orange Mayor Robert Parisi, members of the West Orange Township Council and members of the Downtown West Orange Alliance (DWOA) helped the staff and managers at the Rite Aid Pharmacy located at 262 Main Street commemorate its grand reopening with a celebratory ribbon cutting on Thursday.

Megan Brill, executive director of the DWOA, which hosted the event, said the DWOA is always enthusiastic about welcoming new investments to the downtown, but was especially excited on Thursday to show off the work that has been done to both the inside and outside of the Rite Aid location. Noting how many Rite Aid staff members were on hand to help cut the ribbon and celebrate over cake, Brill said the DWOA was proud to provide an opportunity for them to share the accomplishment on their social media pages and other outlets.

“Part of why we do ribbon cuttings is to give people an idea of what the store looks like now,” said Brill. “Rite Aid being in the heart of downtown is really important. For a lot of people in the neighborhood, this is their go-to store, so we’re excited.”

Rite Aid District Manager Jeff Arpino said the grand opening celebration was an important event for all West Orange-based Rite Aids because it shows the unity among them and that Rite Aid is part of the community.

“’With us, it’s personal’ is our slogan,” said Arpino. “We take that to heart when each and every customer comes in and we’re able to treat them as family and together we can celebrate as family. West Orange is a great little town and I think it’s great being part of this community and everything that goes along with it.”
