The pharmacy chain Kroger is getting ready to open its first online pharmacy in the United States, according to a new report from Reuters.
The company is opening a new location in the San Francisco Bay Area on Wednesday, according a tweet from Kroger.
A Kroger spokesperson told the AP that the store will be staffed with Kroger employees.
The pharmacy will also offer “a full assortment of health and wellness products and services, including the latest in allergy and allergy products, prescription medications, lab tests, nutritional supplements and more,” according to the company.
Kroger already offers an online pharmacy for its employees.
Earlier this year, Kroger opened a pharmacy in California, but it’s still not open to the public.
Krogers new pharmacy will open in the Bay Area and serve as a gateway for other stores, according Reuters.
According to Reuters, Kroggers new pharmacy is expected to open in January, but the exact opening time for other Kroger stores will be announced later.
The new location will be the first in the U.S. to serve as the company’s flagship online pharmacy.
Kroges new online pharmacy will be Kroger’s second online pharmacy to open, following a store opened in California in 2018.
In addition to offering its own online pharmacy, Kroggers pharmacy will offer a full range of health, wellness, and beauty products and treatments.
It is also the first store in the nation to offer a discount card program.
Krogg’s new online clinic is expected in San Francisco in the first half of 2019.
The Kroger chain is also planning to expand its online pharmacy presence, with more locations in California and Ohio.
