Rite Aid

Executive Summary

Chain President Martin Grass arrested April 27 in Cleveland, as he offered a $ 33,000 bribe to a voting member of the Ohio Board of Pharmacy. According to the Cuyahoga County Prosecuting Attorney's office, Grass sought to induce the board member to resign on the belief that Ohio Governor Celeste was prepared to appoint a successor of Rite Aid's choosing. Pharmacy Board records indicate the eight-member board recently fined Rite Aid $ 50,000 for violating unidentified Ohio laws. Rite Aid and the state also were recently involved in a dispute over the deadline for the chain's complying with state law. Grass is free on bond; an indictment in the case is expected within three weeks.
