Amazon Opens First CA Pharmacy In Riverside County


CORONA, CA — Online retail giant Amazon recently opened its first California pharmacy in Riverside County, according to reports.

The company announced in late March that it had launched same-day prescription delivery for the Los Angeles area. The pharmacy is stocked with common medications and neighbors Amazon’s Corona fulfillment center, L.A. Business First reported.

“By bringing Amazon Pharmacy’s deliveries into our existing world-class logistics network, Amazon is building the fastest and most convenient service for the home delivery of prescription medications,” Doug Herrington, CEO of Worldwide Amazon Stores, has said, according to the company. “These faster delivery speeds will be a game changer when you or your family need your medications quickly.”

The company plans to offer price estimates to patients before they order medications to encourage people who are concerned about affordability to fill their prescriptions, The Sun reported. Rivian electric vans may be used for the deliveries, according to Amazon.
