CEO Pete Van Helden said, "I'd like to emphasize that Stater Bros. is a strong and competitive company within the Southern California supermarket landscape poised for continued growth. This business decision will allow the company to grow areas of our core food business that meet the evolving food needs and shifting grocery preferences of our customers."

The two companies said they are working hard to make sure the transition for patients is seamless. Hank Casillas, division vice president for CVS Pharmacy, added: "We're confident that SuperRx patients will be excited about our unique clinical pharmacy services, medication adherence programs, automatic refills and the many innovative digital tools we offer to help patients manage their prescriptions.
