Hims & Hers will open its first brick-and-mortar pharmacy in 2020, the telemedicine company announced Sept. 30. 

The pharmacy, being built in Columbus, Ohio, will be mail-order only. 

The plan allows for Hims & Hers to move some of its pharmacy operations, currently done by a third-party contractor, in-house. 

Hims & Hers consists of two brands. Hims, which launched in 2017, is a direct-to-consumer wellness website for men that offers hair-loss treatments and erectile dysfunction pills. Hers, launched in 2018, offers women access to telehealth and birth control prescriptions.
