DEERFIELD, Ill. — Walgreens is extending its Same Day Delivery service to make it available 24 hours a day, seven days a week in many markets across the country, the company said Thursday. As a result, customers can now order from an assortment of more than 27,000 items at Walgreens.com/SameDayDelivery or via the Walgreens app and get them delivered in as little as one hour, no matter the time of day.
Walgreens says its 24-Hour Same Day Delivery offers a larger selection of items than any other 24-hour retail delivery service, and added that the service is coming to nearly 400 participating 24-hour Walgreens stores across the country. Consumers can use the service to get delivery of last-minute needs like groceries, over-the-counter medications, personal care items, and household essentials. Customers can pick the nearest 24-hour location to place their order as long as it’s within the delivery range.
“Walgreens knows that taking care of health and wellbeing isn’t exclusive to business hours and that needs can pop up at any time of day – that’s why we’re always looking for ways to enhance the customer experience with convenient and trusted solutions,” said Stefanie Kruse, group vice president of digital commerce, Walgreens. “As the place customers turn to for their last-minute needs, we know they will find value in being able to access the items they need most, no matter the hour, right to their door.”
To celebrate the launch, Walgreens is offering customers free delivery on orders of $20+ with code NOW20 through December 10.
