Customers can now order prescription refills by sending a text message to their Walgreens pharmacy.

The Deerfield-based company says more than 25 percent of its online prescription refills are ordered through one of the chain's other existing mobile applications.

The new texting feature will also send customers an alert when a prescription is due for a refill.
