As all channels look for new ways to offer extra convenience to customers, Walgreens has launched a new delivery option where customers can pick up eligible online and mobile app retail orders in-store at more than 7,600 locations, with free shipping and no minimum order required.
The new offering allows customers to shop the retailer’s expanded online product selection and pick up their order at a convenient neighborhood Walgreens or Duane Reade store.
“Our new Ship to Store program provides value to our customers by giving them access to a wide range of products that are typically not found in-store,” said Joe Hartsig, Walgreens senior vice president, merchandising. “With Ship to Store, customers have the ability to ship orders to their preferred Walgreens store if their residence or workplace isn’t a secure option.”
When shopping for eligible items on Walgreens.com or through the Walgreens mobile app, customers can select the Ship to Store free delivery service. Orders typically arrive within one to three business days, and customers will be notified via e-mail once their order is ready for pickup. Walgreens paperless coupons, Balance Rewards benefits and other digital promotions can also be used for Ship to Store orders and seamlessly applied online before payment.
“As a leading omni-channel retailer, we’re continually looking for innovative ways to provide anytime, anywhere convenience by offering the best health, wellness and beauty products with just a few clicks,” added Hartsig. “And with Walgreens stores within five miles of 75% of the U.S. population, this service is another way we can offer convenience by providing more choices to improve the shopping experience for our customers.”
Free shipping to a customer’s home or other address is also available for eligible online orders over $35.
