Feeling under the weather and need an over-the-counter medication delivered to your door or diapers for the little one? Call Uber.
That’s right. Uber, a taxi app company, has announced that it is experimenting with a drug store shopping and delivery service in a limited area to Washington, D.C., residents.
One question that comes to mind is what does it mean for pharmacy retailers? Well, one thing that’s for sure is that if Uber’s service takes off and becomes standard (Uber has said that “the more you love it, the more likely it will last”) it could help pharmacy retailers better compete with rivals who are beefing up their same-day delivery offerings.
