Walgreens Launches On-Demand Delivery
Walgreens just announced an official partnership with on-demand startup Postmates to offer same-day delivery for, initially, a flat delivery fee of $4.99. The on-demand delivery service via Postmates will be available at 600 Walgreens (known as Duane Reade in some parts of the U.S.) stores throughout the country. Postmates has always offered on-demand deliveries of items sold at Walgreens, but with an official partnership, Postmates gets access to Walgreens’ full catalog of items. That means Postmates will work closely with Walgreens to keep its catalog of the 500 most popular items in the store current.
