Delivery services allow customers to continue to shop while at home.
WOONSOCKET, R.I.— CVS Pharmacy has announced a new partnership with DoorDash that will offer consumers the opportunity to have over-the-counter medications, grocery products, and other products delivered to their front doors as part of same-day delivery services.
These expanded delivery services look to allow customers to continue shopping while staying safely at home during the coronavirus disease pandemic. The partnership joins other efforts by CVS during the pandemic, including waiving all prescription delivery fees through August 31.
“This partnership allows customers to get the non-prescription daily essentials they need, while continuing to practice social distancing,” said George Coleman, senior vice president of merchandising for CVS Health.
DoorDash is currently available in Dallas, Houston, Philadelphia and New York City, and will continue to expand in the Bronx, Brooklyn, San Francisco, and Boston metro areas, with a national launch expected in July.
The service does not require a delivery time slot or pre-scheduling, and more than 3000 items are available on the DoorDash app, including health and beauty products, grocery staples, O-T-C items, and household products. All deliveries will be no-contact by default, allowing the delivery driver to leave the order in a secure location chosen by the customer.
