The new program is called “Walgreens express”. With a $5 fee, you can place orders before 4 p.m. on weekdays, and will be available nationwide.

CVS Pharmacy  started a similar service earlier this year.

Walgreens and FedEx began the partnership last year when the drugstore chain began offering package drop-off and pick-up services at several locations.

Amazon launched its version of prescription delivery back in June.
