Superdrug has fast-tracked the launch of a new same-day courier delivery service for customers with urgent orders during the coronavirus pandemic.
The health and beauty retailer said it is offering the courier service to customers living within an eight mile radius of over 300 Superdrug stores across the UK.

“The courier service is something that has been in development a while,” Superdrug ecommerce director Matt Walburn said.
“We’ve brought it forward urgently to help those customers who are social distancing, from visiting stores at the moment and who might be in need of essential supplies quickly.
“We’re so pleased to be able to roll it out immediately to nearly half of our estate and we hope it goes some way in helping people during this time of need.”
Superdrug is also continuing to offer its Online Doctor service throughout the pandemic which allows customers to receive their prescriptions via click-and-collect after four hours, via express delivery within three days, or by standard delivery within six days.
Customers also have the option of an in-store 30 minute order and collect service.
