Which is Cheaper: Walgreens or Rite Aid?

Answer: Rite Aid.

–That's according to records in an ongoing Orange County civil suit that show Illinois-based Walgreens was willing to annually pay $936,000 plus a percentage of sales for 10 years at a proposed 13,000-square-foot store on Pacific Coast Highway and Dover in a ritzy section of Newport Beach. Pennsylvania-based Rite Aid sought to pay at least $300,000 less per year for the same location.

R. Scott Moxley’s award-winning investigative journalism has touched nerves for two decades. An angry congressman threatened to break Moxley’s knee caps. A dirty sheriff promised his critical reporting was irrelevant and then landed in prison. The U.S. House of Representatives debated his work. Federal prosecutors credited his stories for the arrest of a doctor who sold fake medicine to dying patients. Moxley has won Journalist of the Year honors at the Los Angeles Press Club; been named Distinguished Journalist of the Year by the LA Society of Professional Journalists; and hailed by two New York Times Magazine writers for his “herculean job” exposing Southern California law enforcement corruption.
