CVS has partnered with Curbside to launch CVS Express, a digital program offering consumers store pickup services.
CVS Express integrates Curbside’s technology into the retailer’s app. With the service, customers can make mobile, in-app purchases from their local CVS Pharmacy and have those products delivered directly to them when they pull up to the store, all in about one hour, with no markups or added costs, according to the company. It is applicable to all front store and over-the-counter items.
In addition, CVS Health noted that it has made an investment in Curbside, which develops mobile commerce technology for retail store pickup programs.
“Retail pharmacy is an exciting, competitive landscape that is ripe for digital innovation,” said Helena Foulkes, evp/CVS Health and president, CVS Pharmacy. “This partnership with Curbside allows CVS Health to offer new and more convenient ways for our customers to shop with us, ultimately making it easier for them to enjoy a healthy lifestyle in a way that works best for them.”
CVS Express is currently available in San Francisco, Charlotte, NC, and Atlanta, and will begin rolling out to additional locations later this year.
