Tens of thousands of items from Walgreens are now available for delivery via Instacart across Illinois with plans to expand nationwide over the coming weeks.

Customers can now find tens of thousands of Walgreens favourites, including over-the-counter medications, health and wellness, beauty and personal care, household essentials, and convenience products, for quick and easy delivery via Instacart in as fast as an hour.

Following the launch in Illinois, the service will expand over the coming weeks to markets including Southeast Florida, Dallas, Atlanta, Washington D.C., New York City and more. Walgreens and Instacart plan to scale the same-day on-demand delivery collaboration nationwide across all 50 states and Washington D.C. throughout the spring and will also increase the products offered over time.

“Convenience is at the core of what we do and Walgreens is thrilled to be partnering with Instacart to bring customers a simple and trusted same-day delivery option for the products they need right to their door,” said Stefanie Kruse, Vice President, Digital Commerce and Omnichannel at Walgreens. “This collaboration builds upon several other recent steps in our digital transformation to deliver health expertise to customers in new channels, which is timely given shifts in customer needs during the pandemic.”
