Drugstore chain Walgreens and on-demand delivery service provider DoorDash have partnered to expand delivery to customers in select cities across the US.

As part of this partnership, customers in the Chicago, Atlanta and Denver areas can order on-demand delivery from Walgreens through the DoorDash app and website.

Customers can order from an assortment of more than 2,300 convenience, health and wellness items.

The companies aim to offer more than 5,000 items for delivery on the DoorDash platform by the end of this summer.

Additionally, they are planning to expand the service to other major markets including Cincinnati, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Sacramento and Seattle.

DoorDash new verticals head Fuad Hannon said: “We’re thrilled to announce our collaboration with Walgreens to make convenience items more accessible to the local communities we serve.

“Walgreens offers an unmatched assortment of health and beauty, grocery and convenience essentials, and we look forward to continuing our growth beyond food to offer millions of Americans access to thousands of Walgreens items on-demand.

“In light of the ongoing crisis, we will continue to provide customers with access to the supplies they need to maintain a well-cared for and healthy at-home environment.”

Walgreens is now available on DashPass, DoorDash’s subscription service.

As part of this collaboration, DoorDash offers 20% off on Walgreens items via the DoorDash app and website to customers ordering for $15 or more.

In April, convenience retail chain 7-Eleven partnered with DoorDash and another delivery platform Postmates to expand on-demand delivery capability.
