Walgreens is expanding its collaboration with Uber to now include same-day delivery of retail items from the chain via Uber Eats. Shoppers can order more than 2,000 health-and-wellness, beauty, personal care, household essentials and OTC products from more than 7,800 stores in the United States, with plans to add Puerto Rico soon.
“Walgreens provides our customers with seamless health and well-being experiences, and offering them convenient delivery solutions on whichever platform they prefer to shop is key,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president of digital commerce and omnichannel at Walgreens. “Our collaboration with Uber for on-demand delivery through both Walgreens and Uber’s channels, as well as integrated vaccine scheduling, gives customers simple and easy ways to put their health and well-being needs at the forefront — which will continue to be important to them as we emerge from the pandemic.”
The partnership between the ride-share, delivery app and Walgreens kicked off earlier this year when the two worked together to bring a new vaccine scheduling option to the Uber app, allowing users to schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at Walgreens and reserve a ride for the appointment all within the Uber app.
"By leveraging the best of what Walgreens and Uber have to offer, we're making it easier than ever for customers to prioritize their health and wellness," said Raj Beri, Uber’s head of grocery delivery. "From on-demand delivery of essentials to hassle-free vaccine scheduling all at the touch of a button, we're focused on eliminating barriers that burden customers’ everyday life, helping them go anywhere and get anything instantly.”
As part of the launch, Walgreens and Uber Eats are offering $20 off of orders of $30 or more through June 27.
