DoorDash recently made a public statement announcing its partnering with Sam’s Club to offer same-day prescription delivery service to patients all over the United States.
The deal will involved five hundred Sam’s Club locations in 41 states. The program will be implanted through the Drive software other businesses use to integrate delivery into their online businesses. In this instance customers have to begin with initiating the service through the wholesaler.
According to COO Christopher Payne, expanding beyond food delivery has always been part of the vision but the pandemic brought on the importance of offering this kind of same day delivery of other essentials, like prescriptions.
This will be the first kind of large scale, non-food partnership for DoorDash.
