business news in context, analysis with attitude

CNBC reports that "DoorDash announced a partnership Thursday with Walgreens Boots Alliance to deliver over-the-counter medication and other products from the drugstore chain.

"The service is launching in the Chicago, Atlanta and Denver areas, with plans to expand to other markets throughout the summer, according to a news release. More than 2,300 products from the store are available for delivery."

The story notes that "DoorDash and CVS Health teamed up for a similar collaboration last month as the on-demand delivery start-up continues to widen its offerings outside of restaurants."

KC's View:

What I said above about seeing "a flurry of achieved and attempted acquisitions and mergers?"  Expect also to see a lot of new partnerships and alliances, as companies that used to just deliver one sort of thing decide that wheels are wheels and can be used to deliver pretty much anything.
