More than 24,000 items are now available for contactless same-day delivery from Walgreens stores across the country. Shoppers using the Walgreens app or online at Walgreens.com can now receive items in less than two hours, and members of the myWalgreens loyalty program can earn and use Walgreens Cash rewards and redeem digital promotions. Eligible products, delivery hours and fees will vary by location.
Walgreens had piloted same-day delivery in February 2021 in its Illinois stores. The retailer launched in-store, curbside and drive-thru pickups in as little as 30 minutes in November 2020, and also has made agreements for on-demand delivery services via partnerships with Postmates, DoorDash and Instacart.
“As the country gets ready to emerge from the pandemic, Walgreens continues its focus on enhancing our customer experience through integrated and simplified shopping solutions,” said Stefanie Kruse, VP of Digital Commerce at Walgreens in a statement. “Since the launch of myWalgreens in November 2020, we are constantly innovating to provide convenient delivery options to our customers that make their lives easier. We are confident that customers will enjoy our new Same Day Delivery functionality for those last-minute needs.”
