Social distancing might make it difficult to shop in stores. Walgreens is working around this by providing the option to purchase essential items at drive-thru locations. This is a wonderful way to score items when you need them most, without the hassle of shopping online or getting out of your car.

If you do need to order online, you can score free shipping on orders of $35 or more. Select items are also available for free ship to store and you can pick them up at the photo counter. If you need same day delivery, learn how Walgreens is pairing with Postmates.

How does this work?

All you need to do is head to your nearest local Walgreens with a drive-thru and ask to see a menu of available items you can purchase. These items are subject to availability and quantities are limited.

What items are available?

You can purchase items such as household goods, pain relief, grocery, cough & cold medicine, baby formula, pet food and medical supplies. It is important to note that the items must fit through the drive-thru bin.

Do I need to order these items ahead of time?

You are in luck — you can pull right up to the drive-thru and get your items right then and there. There is no need to pre-order, go in the store, or even leave your car.
