Kroger and Walgreens pilot grocery pickup

US grocer Kroger Co is partnering with drug retailer Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. to pilot test grocery pickup at some Walgreens stores, Reuters says.

US grocers have been implementing new ways to draw more shoppers to their stores as they face intense competition from online retailer Amazon.com Inc and its Whole Foods unit.

Kroger said the pilot program will run at 13 Walgreens stores near Kroger's Cincinnati headquarters. Customers will also be able to shop for its 'Our Brands' range, including the Simple Truth organic food brand, at the Walgreens stores.
