Sam’s Club to offer same-day prescription delivery via DoorDash
Sam’s Club is partnering with DoorDash to offer same-day prescription delivery across the country. This first-of-its-kind pharmaceutical delivery experience from DoorDash covers more than 500 Sam’s Club locations across 41 states, and is powered exclusively through Drive, DoorDash's white-label fulfillment platform that powers direct delivery for business partners.
Sam’s Club members can receive free delivery on their first two pharmacy orders until Jan. 31, 2022. After this promotion is used or expires, delivery will carry a flat fee of $7.99 for all patients.
Patients can call their local Sam’s Club pharmacies and speak to a Sam’s Club pharmacist to schedule delivery. Through the DoorDash Drive integration, Dashers will fulfill eligible pharmacy order deliveries from Sam’s Club. Sam’s Club is taking steps to make Rx delivery options available in the Sam’s Club app in the first half of 2021.
“Our partnership with DoorDash to launch this new service allows us to not only give our members more convenient healthcare options, but also delivers on our commitment to their overall wellness needs,” said John McDowell, vice president of pharmacy operations and divisional merchandise at Sam’s Club. “Sam’s Club has always adapted to our members changing needs, and that’s never been truer than today as we continue to evolve our ways of shopping to help them live healthier, happier lives.”
This marks DoorDash’s first pharmaceutical partnership of this kind at scale, launching with one of the nation’s leading wholesale clubs. Sam’s Club chose DoorDash for its commitment to quality logistics, vast geographic footprint in the U.S., and reputation for providing a reliable, on-time delivery platform, the company said.
“Businesses have evolved amidst the pandemic to prioritize the safety of their communities and to adapt to new consumer habits, and our goal is to help merchants meet those demands in a way that’s best for their business,” said Christopher Payne, DoorDash COO. “Same-day pharmaceutical deliveries have never been more important in today’s health climate, and we’re incredibly honored to team up with Sam’s Club to make that option a reality for their business and for their customers. Through this partnership, Sam’s Club can continue to provide the quality and service their patients expect, made even more reliable and safe with store-to-door delivery powered by DoorDash.”
