Walgreens Launches Contactless, Same Day Delivery Nationwide for Retail Products

Leading pharmacy chain Walgreens recently expanded its e-commerce offering by introducing Same Day Delivery in under two hours for more than 24,000 retail products.

The new service allows customers across the nation to conveniently shop online or use the Walgreens app to buy retail items with no minimum order value. When checking out, customers can select Same Day Delivery and receive items at their doors in under two hours through third-party delivery partners like Postmates, DoorDash and Instacart.

Walgreens’ Same Day Delivery service builds on its pickup options implemented in November 2020, which allow customers to place orders for in-store, curbside or drive-thru pickup in as little as 30 minutes. The pharmacy chain has also partnered with FedEx over the last few years to provide prescription delivery services for greater ease and accessibility.

Before and since the pandemic began, Walgreens has modified its omnichannel fulfilment offerings and successfully adapted and reorganized to evolve along with the marketplace and help meet customers’ growing demands for convenience and safety. Adopting an agile approach to shipping and fulfilment to create a flexible supply chain helps retailers like Walgreens and other organizations work more effectively to increase responsiveness and improve customer experiences.
