CVS Health has announced a partnership with Curbside, a company perfecting the store pickup experience for retailers and consumers, to launch CVS Express, a digital solution offering consumers a new level of seamless convenience.

CVS Health is also investing in Curbside, demonstrating the company’s commitment to driving further innovations that will help customers save time and money while pursuing a healthier lifestyle.

The partnership with Curbside allows CVS Health to offer new and more convenient ways for its customers to shop, ultimately making it easier for them to enjoy a healthy lifestyle in a way that works best for them.

With CVS Express, customers can make mobile, in-app purchases from their local CVS Pharmacy with the CVS Pharmacy app, and have those products delivered directly to them when they pull up to the store, all in about one hour with no markups or added costs for convenience. Curbside’s technology is built right into the CVS Pharmacy app

Created in less than three months in the CVS Digital Innovation Lab in partnership with Curbside, CVS Express embodies the digital mission of CVS Health to make healthy lifestyles more accessible and convenient for customers nationwide.

“We believe digital tools are the key to making health care convenient, personal and affordable for our customers, and CVS Express is a perfect embodiment of our digital mission,” said Brian Tilzer, Senior Vice President and Chief Digital Officer, CVS Health. “By working closely with our retail team and partnering with Curbside, we rapidly developed a seamless and simple solution that creates a significant time savings for customers. We are committed to redefining convenience and this will be one of many steps on that journey.”

CVS Express is currently available in San Francisco, Charlotte, N.C., and Atlanta, and will begin rolling out to additional CVS Pharmacy locations later this year. It is applicable to all front store and over-the-counter items, with no added cost to the customer for using the service.
