WOONSOCKET, R.I.— CVS Pharmacy is partnering with DoorDash to offer consumers the opportunity to have products, including over-the-counter medications and grocery items, delivered to their homes as part of same-day delivery services.
These expanded delivery services are designed so that customers can continue shopping while staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic. The partnership expands on other efforts by CVS to serve its customers during the pandemic, including waiving all prescription delivery fees through June 30.
“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 3,000 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.
