Kroger pilots grocery pickup at Walgreens stores

Grocery chain Kroger is partnering with Walgreens for a pilot program that will allow customers to pick up groceries at Walgreens locations, according to Fortune.

The pilot program will be rolled out over the next few months in 13 Walgreens stores in northern Kentucky, and will allow customers who buy Kroger groceries online to pick them up in Walgreens locations, which will also stock some Kroger-brand products. The partnership better positions Kroger against Amazon, which has begun to offer grocery pickup and delivery for its Whole Foods customers.

"This exciting collaboration aligns with Kroger's vision of serving America through food inspiration and uplift," said Rodney McMullen, Kroger's chairman and CEO. "This concept brings together the best of two great brands to rethink convenience and redefine the way America shops for food."
