DoorDash has officially launched the program in Atlanta, Chicago and Denver. Customers in these areas can now access any of the 2,300 Walgreens products included.

Christopher Payne, CEO of DoorDash, said the service “will grow rapidly to 5,000 products, basically bringing the entire Walgreens store  to your home as needed.”

The company said it will expand the program to other metro areas in the coming months. Expect to see service soon in Cincinnati, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City, Phoenix, Sacramento and Seattle.

Inspired by COVID-19

This effort comes at a time when many are still sheltering at home. Because of the risk of COVID-19 shrinkage, the need for home delivery has increased. The new service reduces the need for shopping trips.

“One of the things we’ve done in COVID-19 is we move beyond restaurants and focus on improving local economies by bringing other things that people want to offer to their home. Walgreens is a great example of that.”

Similar projects

If you do not have Walgreens locations near you, or you prefer several other stores, DoorDash offers  other options. Last month, the company launched a similar consortium with CVS. It also has delivery partnerships with 7-Eleven, CircleK, Wawa and Casey General Store.

For those who do not wish to use DoorDash, Postmates will also offer additional medications from competing Walgreens.

However, it should be noted that DoorDash offers some attractive discounts in an effort to attract customers. DoorDash offers 20% off Walgreens for your first order of $15 or more in its new partnership.
