retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Internet Retailer reports that Walgreen has introduced a new service that sends text reminders to customers’ mobile phones reminding them that they have a prescription scheduled to be refilled, and then again when the refill is ready for pickup.

The program builds on an existing program that texts customers when submitted prescriptions are ready for pickup ... a program, Walgreen says, that is “routinely” used by more than two million of its customers.
