Walgreens is expanding its on-demand delivery to over 7,000 stores across the U.S. through its partnership with Postmates, amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Customers can now order over-the counter medications, household essentials and convenience products through the delivery app Postmates, as well as by visiting the company’s website.
“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,” Walgreens president, Richard Ashworth, said in a statement.
Some currently high-demand items may not be available in the Postmates inventory, according to the statement.
