Walgreens is the latest major chain to add same-day pickup options for online orders. The company says it can have your items ready for collection from a store, curbside or drive-through in as little as 30 minutes.
While it's far from the first retailer to offer same-day pickup, it's a welcome move that should help more customers spend as little time as possible in enclosed public spaces amid rising COVID-19 case numbers. Walgreens also offers delivery through Postmates and DoorDash.
The chain announced the same-day pickup options as part of its myWalgreens loyalty program. The service also offers round-the-clock access to pharmacists and health-related advice, along with personalized product recommendations and discounts.
