ATLANTA — CVS Pharmacy stores nationwide have begun offering UPS package pickup and return services.
The pickup options will roll out to more than 6,000 stores and combine two of the nation’s biggest brands.
“This deal offers additional convenience to consumers in the e-commerce era,” said UPS chief marketing officer Kevin Warren. “Working with CVS Pharmacy demonstrates our commitment to increased customer choice and control with our global UPS My Choice network.”
For CVS, joining the UPS Access Point network will not only help drive store traffic but also provide UPS customers with the option to consolidate their trips and spending.
“We will continue to bring our customers new omnichannel services and experiences that redefine convenience and make it easier to meet the demands of their increasingly busy lives,” said Kevin Hourican, executive vice president of CVS Health and president of CVS Pharmacy. “Adding UPS Access Point locations at CVS Pharmacy locations offers added convenience in local communities throughout the country for shipping and safely receiving packages.”
Until now, local businesses and UPS stores have largely served as UPS Access Point locations.
UPS commented that it is broadening its services to offer a network of secure choices to busy shoppers.
“Consumers now have access to a vast and robust suite of options that include the CVS locations, neighborhood businesses, lockers and the UPS store centers,” Warren said.
