NEW JERSEY – Rite Aid recently announced the expansion of their partnership with Uber Technologies, Inc. to offer delivery of Rite Aid products nationwide through Uber Eats.

Uber Pass and Eats Pass customers will also enjoy $0 Delivery Fee and 5% off on all orders over $15.

“Consumer shopping preferences are changing, so we are continuing to evolve our retail business to ensure customers are able to conveniently get what they need to keep their family happy and healthy – whether they visit us in-store or buy online,” said Jim Peters, chief operating officer, Rite Aid. “By adding Uber as a delivery option, we are doubling down on an omnichannel approach that complements the busy lives of our customers. Ensuring convenient access to whole health essentials enables us to live our purpose of helping people achieve whole health for life.”
