“We recognize that many people in our communities face challenges that prevent them from shopping in our stores,” said Omer Gajial, chief digital officer and executive vice president of health at Albertsons. “As a neighborhood grocer, we’re privileged to partner with WinnCompanies to make nutrition, wellness and pharmacy services more accessible and convenient for WinnCompanies’ residents.”
This partnership will provide services on an ongoing basis that includes prescription drop-off and mail delivery, grocery delivery, and on-site immunizations administered by Albertsons’ pharmacy associates.
In addition, residents will be able to obtain access to care at Albertsons’ pharmacies, including those at Safeway, Shaw’s, Star Market and Jewel-Osco stores across the country.
