What are our findings?

RiteAid seems to be on the right track regarding their prescriptions and assistance over the phone which is good. Though they should still focus on improving these topics in order to raise the overall average for the project. As to “customer service”, they have issues due to the downwards sentiment trend. They should circle back to what they did in 2017, or at least investigate what they’ve done differently since then.
