Nimble looks to be the next Instacart
As Amazon ventures into the multibillion dollar pharmacy industry, Nimble, a 2014 pharmacy startup, is trying to beat Amazon to the punch.
According to CNBC, Nimble Pharmacy is focusing on helping local pharmacies deliver to customers. Essentially, Nimble seeks to become the pharmacy industry’s Instacart, according to the article.
“[Pharmacies] now recognize that the world is changing, and they’re seeing acceleration of the service from Amazon-owned PillPack, as well as Walgreens and CVS launching delivery options of their own,” said Nimble CEO Talha Sattar.
According to the article, the company charges a $6.99 delivery fee plus a 99 cent service fee on top of the standard copay and any taxes. That’s comparable to what CVS charges for same-day delivery and a little more than Walgreens’ next-day service.
