With growing competition from Amazon, CVS has announced that it will begin next-day delivery of prescription medications.  According to their website, the service will begin early next year, and will be nationwide, including the Southcoast.

CVS is the largest pharmacy chain in America, with over 9700 locations.  They also hope to offer same-day service in many cities, including Boston, beginning in early 2018.

Here on The Southcoast, CVS has 4 stores in New Bedford, 3 in Fall River, as well as locations in Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Wareham and Middleboro.  The company did not say how much the next-day home delivery would cost.
