Amazon Pharmacy may expand to UK, Canada, Aus: Report

San Francisco, Jan 22 (IANS) Amazon is looking to expanding its prescription drug delivery business likely to be called Amazon Pharmacy, to countries like the UK, Canada and Australia.

The e-commerce titan has applied for a trademark on the name “Amazon Pharmacy” in Canada, the UK and Australia, according to CNBC.

Amazon reportedly filed its applications on January 9, in what could've been one of the earliest steps it took to start medicine delivery in countries other than the US, Engadget reported on Wednesday.

The retail giant had purchased online pharmacy PillPack in 2018, a year after reports came out that it was looking to enter the healthcare industry.

PillPack is a medicine delivery service catering to customers who need to take multiple daily medications.

A few months after the acquisition was announced, the tech giant changed PillPack's branding to “PillPack by Amazon Pharmacy”, the Engadget report added.
