Walgreen’s customers can now buy grocery items and household goods through its pharmacy drive-thru’s.

The retailer said drivers can pull up to the window and ask for a menu of items, including groceries, medicine, baby formula, medical supplies and household goods.

Customers do not have to preorder or leave their car, according to the Walgreens website.

The retailer is making the service available as the nation promotes social distancing during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
