CAMP HILL, Pa. – Starting today customers at more than 800 Rite Aid (NYSE, PCX:RAD) stores on the West Coast and in Harrisburg, PA can upload, edit and order digital pictures on http://www.RITEAID.com and pick up the prints at their local Rite Aid store in just one hour.
In just a few easy steps customers can select pictures saved on their computer, or upload new pictures on to the One Hour Picture Center on http://www.RITEAID.com, crop, zoom, adjust the color, add special effects like changing a color picture to black and white, and preview the result.
