Under this initiative, health and wellness items, including selected over-the-counter medications, other household essentials and convenience products, can be ordered for home delivery.
Customers in cities across the country can shop from more than 7,000 Walgreen s stores and get their items delivered via Postmates . However, the service is not available in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
Walgreen s president Richard Ashworth said: “During these challenging times, our customers need alternate options to get the essential products they need.
“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.”
Additionally, unlimited free delivery is offered for customers subscribed to its Postmates Unlimited membership service.
Postmates merchant business development VP Craig Whitmer said: “Community health and safety is paramount at Postmates , so we’re working to support our merchant partners, like Walgreen s, and get essential items into the hands of our customers.”
