Walgreens, Postmates expand delivery to 7,000 stores
Walgreens and Postmates continue to expand their partnership, which brings Walgreens shoppers on-demand delivery. Following the recent expansion of the service to 13 cities, the two companies on Tuesday announced that the partnership has officially gone nationwide, making delivery an option from more than 7,000 Walgreens stores in the continental United States.
“During these challenging times, our customers need alternate options to get the essential products they need,” said Walgreens president Richard Ashworth. “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.”
The companies said orders can be placed via Postmates.com or the Postmates app. The delivery company offers unlimited free delivery via Postmates Unlimited, which costs $9.99 per month.
“Community health and safety is paramount at Postmates, so we’re working to support our merchant partners, like Walgreens, and get essential items into the hands of our customers,” said Craig Whitmer, VP, Merchant Business Development, Postmates.
Walgreens noted that some high-demand items may not be available in the Postmates inventory.
