As per reports, Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) has collaborated with Uber Technologies (UBER) to offer products directly on the Uber Eats platform to customers across the United States. Customers can get health and wellness, beauty and personal care, household essentials, over-the-counter medications, and more, from Walgreens, delivered through Uber. The on-demand delivery service is now available from more than 7,800 stores across the United States with Puerto Rico to soon follow.
“Walgreens provides our customers with seamless health and well-being experiences, and offering them convenient delivery solutions on whichever platform they prefer to shop is key. Our collaboration with Uber for on-demand delivery through both Walgreens and Uber’s channels, as well as integrated vaccine scheduling, gives customers simple and easy ways to put their health and well-being needs at the forefront – which will continue to be important to them as we emerge from the pandemic,” stated Stefanie Kruse, vice president, digital commerce and omnichannel at Walgreens.
“By leveraging the best of what Walgreens and Uber have to offer we’re making it easier than ever for customers to prioritize their health and wellness. From on-demand delivery of essentials to hassle-free vaccine scheduling all at the touch of a button, we’re focused on eliminating barriers that burden customers’ everyday life, helping them go anywhere and get anything instantly,” stated Raj Beri, Uber’s Head of Grocery Delivery.
Customers simply need to open the Uber Eats app, tap the convenience or pharmacy icons, select Walgreens and begin shopping. Walgreens and Uber Eats are also offering customers offers and discounts through 6/27, to celebrate the launch. Earlier this year, Uber and Walgreens worked together to create a new vaccine scheduling option via the Uber app where Uber users in the United States were allowed to book a COVID-19 vaccine appointment at Walgreens, along with scheduling a pickup time and reserving a ride for the appointment.
