“We are waiving prescription delivery fees to help our customers manage their medication needs during the unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic, which can make it challenging for people to visit our stores,” said Mark Panzer, SVP of Albertsons Cos. pharmacy health and wellness. “This step is in line with our mission at Albertsons Cos. to take care of our patients, help them achieve their health and wellness goals, and secure the best care available.”

“Albertsons’ Co. has been a trusted and valued partner for ScriptDrop over the last few years,” said Nick Potts, CEO of ScriptDrop. “We’re proud of their decision to offer waived delivery fees to their patients and honored to be a part of the solution to keep patients healthy during this stressful time.” 

This announcement represents the latest in a series of actions Albertsons Cos. is taking to address the challenges of COVID-19, including: 

  • Albertsons Cos. and Albertsons Cos. Foundation have pledged $3 million and launched a major fundraiser to help feed families in need during the Covid-19 crisis;
  • Asking customers to respect dedicated shopping hours for senior citizens and other at-risk populations;
  • Adjusting store hours to give teams the time they need to restock shelves and get ready to serve their community; and
  • Creating “Contact Free” delivery procedures so that delivery drivers can sign for customers when delivering orders.

Patients should consult their local pharmacy for pricing on one- or two-hour rush deliveries, as this service will continue to have delivery fees. 

Albertsons Cos. will re-evaluate delivery pricing after May 1 based on the latest developments with the Covid-19 outbreak. 

Albertsons Cos. Inc. is one of the largest food and drug retailers in the United States, operating stores across 34 states and the District of Columbia under 20 well-known banners including Albertsons, Safeway, Vons, Jewel-Osco, Shaw’s, Acme, Tom Thumb, Randalls, United Supermarkets, Pavilions, Star Market, Haggen and Carrs.
