Drugstore.com's gift to military, foreign service: Free shipping
BELLEVUE, Wash. — Online retailer Drugstore.com said it would offer free shipping to military and foreign service addresses for the holidays.
Orders placed by Dec. 3 on Drugstore.com and its sister site, Beauty.com, for $49 or more will receive free shipping with arrival by Dec. 24 when sent to APO/FPO/DPO addresses. The company was motivated to do the promotion as its customers in the military and foreign service have said it is difficult to find essential products when they are far away from home.
"This is an easy, convenient way for family and friends of members of the military or foreign service to send gifts and care packages to loved ones this time of year," said Ron Kelly, VP customer services at Drugstore.com.
