Years ago I remember a chat here about this subject. Some had a big preference for their brand. I just read the Drug store is expanding distribution of their ice cream. I remember Idaho Washington or Oregon.

Thrifty was a beloved California drug store chain that Rite-Aid bought. They were renown for their ice-cream which they historically used as a loss leader. Everybody went there for ice-cream because it was a nickel a scoop. Rite-Aid appeased us by keeping the Ice Cream.



My mother STILL would NEVER let me have 3 scoops. I liked chocolate chip or rainbow sherbet.

Yup those nifty little circle scoops. We would go around town and find bottles to return then head to Thrifty's for ice cream. Once I had enough for six scoops, most of which never made it to my mouth.

Holy smokes, I just went searching for one of those scoops. It will cost you $125 minimum, or 2500 scoops at 1970 prices, to buy one.

I sometimes shop at a Rite Aid that is located a block away from a client. Apparently things happen there. When I was last on jury duty, which I think was in 2015, I was in the pool for a case that involved theft at that Rite Aid store, as well as assault with a bottle of shampoo. Allegedly the defendant had thrown shampoo at the employee who caught him stealing. I didn’t get picked for that jury, or for any other, fortunately.

Today I got a Citizen App alert that someone with a knife had robbed that same store.

I don’t remember what kind of ice cream they sell.



My life goes smoothly and in regular intervals

I seem to remember the pistachio was really good. I haven't had any in at least 20 years.

I lived for five years (moved two months ago) three blocks from a Rite Aid store. The ice cream counter has steady traffic and specially durable by summer weekends. The quality is consistently good. Worth a stop
If you’re near a rite aid. I think that they all have ice cream altho would not swear to that. There is the same ice cream left in the freezer for sale:

The Thrifty's somewhat near me shut down and wasn't replaced with a Rite-Aid, if I recall correctly.

There was a Payless store that was, but no ice cream.

For anyone confused, this is mostly a Regional/California thing.

Rite Aid should've never acquired Thrifty/Payless. It was the beginning of the end for Martin Grass who spent 7 years in federal prison. He was the son of the founder, Alex Grass who started the company in 1962 with one drug store in Scranton, PA.

Here's an article from 2015 that explains a little about the history. Obviously, Walgreens never acquired Rite Aid.

A staple of New Orleans up until Rite Aid bought them and borked all the stores.
