On-demand service will now be available in 13 additional cities.

DEERFIELD, Ill. — Following a successful roll-out of Postmates on-demand delivery service of items available at select Walgreens stores in New York City and Brooklyn last October, Walgreens and Postmates announced Monday that the service will now be available in 13 additional cities.

Consumers in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Portland (OR), Washington DC, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale and Houston can now get their health and wellness and other convenience products, including select over-the-counter medications, delivered to them from Walgreens stores via Postmates.

“We are thrilled to expand delivery service from Walgreens stores to more cities, especially Los Angeles, where we are the market leader with more than 120% more market share than the closest competitor,” said Craig Whitmer, vice president, merchant business development at Postmates. “The drug store/convenience category is one that customers turn to for convenience on the Postmates platform.”

To celebrate today’s announcement, Postmates is offering a one-time free delivery, starting Monday, March 9 through Sunday, March 15.

“Convenience is becoming increasingly important to our shoppers. They are looking to retailers, like Walgreens, to help them save time in their busy lives,” said Stefanie Kruse, vice president, digital commerce and omni-channel at Walgreens. “It’s all about getting customers what they need, when and where is most convenient for them.

We look forward to making our core product assortment available in these new cities through our expanded ongoing collaboration with Postmates, a leader in the industry providing on-demand delivery to customers, direct-to-their-door, or wherever they are.”

To order items available at more than 1,700 participating Walgreens stores, those who are interested can visit Postmates.com or download the Postmates mobile app. They will pay zero delivery fees when they subscribe to Postmates membership service, Postmates Unlimited, for $9.99 per month.
