Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) announced today that it has extended its solicitation of consents to amend the terms of the indentures for its 8.125% senior secured notes due 2010 (CUSIP 767754BFO) (the “2010 Notes”) and its 7.5% senior secured notes due 2015 (CUSIP 767754BK9) (the “2015 Notes” and together with the 2010 Notes, the “Notes”).
