Alex Grass, one of the founders of rite aid and a pioneer of chain drugstore retailing, died Thursday in Harrisburg, Pa., following a 10-year battle with lung cancer. He was 82.
Rite Aid made its debut in 1962 solely as a health and beauty aids merchant under the name Thrif D., and with Grass at the helm, it expanded into one of the largest and most productive drugstore chains in the nation.
