The new store will have an ice cream stall and a drive-through pharmacy in about 17,000 square feet, said Mike Hieshima of the Carpinteria-based developer Epsteen & Associates.
The entire staff is poignant over, local store manager Jim Barksdale said, noting that approximately 20 to 25 staff are excited about the change.
The new store will mark an updated look with stone veneer siding, red-tile roof and new landscaping, Hieshima said. There will also be 62 new parking places.
The existing Rite Aid, situated behind the new building in the Plaza Del Camino shopping center, is more than 20 years old, he said. It will feature 21,000 square feet of vacant space for a new tenant when Rite Aid moves out.
