The company has done everything from adding Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) mail lockers to considering telemedicine just to keep the lights on. The continuous lack of scaling to more scrilla could open doors again to a potential buyout.

THE RETURN...

Rite Aid's stock is down 20%+ since it announced its new CEO and is down 62% in total so far this year.
