Walgreens and Postmates are expanding their on-demand delivery service to 7,000 stores nationwide amid the coronavirus pandemic.
With this expansion, consumers in cities across the country can get health and wellness items, including select over-the-counter medications, and other household essentials and convenience products they need delivered to them from more than 7,000 Walgreens stores.
“During these challenging times, our customers need alternate options to get the essential products they need,” said Walgreens President, Richard Ashworth. “By expanding our delivery service collaboration with Postmates, more customers can get what they need, delivered on-demand, at their doorstep. Because of Postmates’ non-contact delivery options for certain items, Postmates drivers will leave deliveries on doorsteps, keeping these transactions completely contact-less, with no personal interaction required.”
To order any of the items available, customers should visit Postmates.com or download the Postmates mobile app. Customers can get access to unlimited free delivery when they subscribe to Postmates membership service, Postmates Unlimited, for $9.99 per month.
“Community health and safety is paramount at Postmates, so we’re working to support our merchant partners, like Walgreens, and get essential items into the hands of our customers,” said Craig Whitmer, VP, Merchant Business Development, Postmates.
