By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

As per reports, Walgreen Boots Alliance (WBA) has partnered with Postmates to address the rising need for home delivery nationwide amid the coronavirus outbreak. Consumers can now get health and wellness items including some OTC products medications, household essentials from more than  7,000 Walgreens stores. To place an order the customer needs to visit Postmates.com or download the Postmates mobile app. Access to unlimited free delivery can be availed when customers subscribe to Postmates membership service, Postmates Unlimited with a charge of $9.99 per month.

“During these challenging times, our customers need alternate options to get the essential products they need. By expanding our delivery service collaboration with Postmates, more customers can get what they need, delivered on-demand, at their doorstep. 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.” stated Walgreens President, Richard Ashworth.

“Community health and safety is paramount at Postmates, so we’re working to support our merchant partners, like Walgreens, and get essential items into the hands of our customers,” stated Craig Whitmer, VP, Merchant Business Development, Postmates.
