Washington Trust removing ATMs from pharmacies


WESTERLY — The Washington Trust is removing 38 ATMs from Rite Aid pharmacies in Rhode Island and Connecticut.

The bank initially had an agreement many years ago with Brooks Pharmacy to supply ATMs to its stores. When the Warwick-based drugstore chain was acquired by Rite Aid in June of 2007, it renewed that agreement with the new owner, according to Washington Trust spokesperson Elizabeth B. Eckel.

Now, however, Rite Aid has decided to go with one vendor for all its more than 2,000 stores across the nation.

Eckel said having the bank’s name on the ATMs is all about branding and a convenience for its customers, and that the bank was not making any money on fees.

The bank currently has 35 ATMs at its banks and 59 branded ATMs throughout Rhode Island and Connecticut. The bank is adding 37 ATMs in a variety of locations, including restaurants, convenience stores, and even one at Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence.

The bank recently sent information to its customers informing them of the change, and to remind them that using the ATMs at Rite Aid could incur a transaction fee. It expects to complete the removal of all ATMs from Rite Aid by Sept. 1

Customers with questions should call the bank’s customer service center at 800-475-2265.
