Rite Aid same-store sales fall in June

Camp Hill, Pa. Rite Aid Corp. said Thursday that its total revenue and same-store sales both fell in June compared with a year earlier, when consumers' worries about the swine flu outbreak boosted sales of flu shots and treatments.

The chain said comp-store sales fell 2.5% in the four weeks that ended June 26. Pharmacy revenue from those stores dropped 3.7%, and sales of food, cosmetics, magazines, and other products fell 1.1%.
