In a notice filed in court, Rite Aid said it determined that 31 more stores in 12 should be closed “in the exercise of their business judgement.” In an earlier court filing, Rite Aid said closings were “in the best interests” of the company.

The stores added to the closure list Tuesday are located in California, Connecticut, Maryland, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, court records show.

In October, Rite Aid filed for bankruptcy, citing falling sales and the impact of opioid-related lawsuits.

Following the announced closures, Rite Aid will have about 2,000 stores remaining, CNN reported.
