Walgreens expands same-day pickup nationwide
Walgreens is rolling its curbside pickup offerings to the whole country. The contactless same-day pickup service will be available at 8,600 stores nationwide, having previously rolled out to roughly half of that number of stores. Customers can place an order and pay for health, wellness and household products and pick them up in as little as an hour.
“We are always looking to provide our customers with safe, easy and convenient contactless shopping options to get the retail items they need, whether that’s via same-day delivery through our collaborations with DoorDash and Postmates, same-day pick-up with our order online pick-up at drive-thru, or now via our newest digital enhancement, order online pick-up at curbside,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president, digital commerce and omnichannel at Walgreens.
The available product assortment includes 1000 essential health and wellness products spanning grocery, cleaning suppliers, OTC products, infant and baby, medical supplies, first aid and paper goods.
Walgreens’ website now has a tool for finding the nearest curbside pickup location based on zip code. Once an order is placed, customers will receive an email when their order is ready. The email contains a link that can be opened to alert the store staff of the customer’s arrival. They then place the order in the customer’s trunk or wherever the customer prefers.
