Rite Aid customers can now get their orders delivered the same day — as soon as one hour in certain cases.

The drug store chain is partnering with Shipt to bring same-day delivery across Rite Aid’s retail footprint, which extends across 17 states. Customers can order from more than 2,000 Rite Aid locations through the Shipt marketplace, with delivery to their door in as soon as one hour. The rollout follows a successful pilot.

Rite Aid will offer more than 20,000 products, including cold and flu medicines, vitamins, beauty staples and snacks, available to customers through Shipt. To kick off the partnership, from Aug. 5 through Aug. 12, customers will receive $10 off when they spend $50 on their first order.

“Our partnership with Shipt brings another level of convenience to the Rite Aid customer experience," said Katie Finnegan, chief customer experience and e-commerce officer, Rite Aid. "As consumer preferences continue to evolve, offering options is important, and we'll continue exploring ways to make it as easy as possible for our customers to get the items they need to keep their families healthy, happy and thriving."

Rite Aid is the second major health and wellness partner of Shipt, which is an independently operated, wholly owned subsidiary of Target Corp. In February, GNC said it would offer same-day delivery through Shipt.

“Shipt continues to evolve as a multi-vertical delivery service that can serve as a one-stop-shop regardless of a customer's need, and Rite Aid is a valued partner in that journey,” said Rina Hurst, chief business officer at Shipt.
