BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Drizly, the technology company behind the first and largest e-commerce alcohol app, brings a revolutionary way to shop for adult beverages to Phoenix, starting today. Drizly connects adults of legal drinking age with best-in-class local alcohol retailers, making it easy for consumers to shop for beer, wine, and spirits by simply downloading the Drizly mobile app (App Store and Google Play) on a smartphone or tablet, or visiting Drizly.com.
Drizly provides visibility into inventories from multiple retailers, giving adult beverage consumers access to a wide selection and competitive pricing as never before. Orders can be delivered by local partner retailers within one hour, at a conveniently scheduled time, or reserved for in-store pickup.
Phoenix neighborhoods within the current Drizly network include Glendale, Peoria, Scottsdale, Tempe, Mesa, Gilbert, and Chandler, and will be served by local retailers including Lucky's Liquor, Gary's Liquor and Chandler Liquors. Beyond alcohol, Drizly users can shop for ice, mixers, and more. There is no price markup, and a modest delivery fee of $5 per order which stays the same no matter how many items are ordered. In-store pickup is free of charge. Drizly provides its partnering retailers with a proprietary ID verification technology that allows delivery personnel to scan IDs and confirm that customers are of legal drinking age.
“Who doesn't love options? With Drizly, customers can shop our store online and get same-day delivery,” said Jack Sulaiman, CEO and Founder of Lucky’s Liquor.
“Phoenix is my hometown, so bringing Drizly and all of its benefits here marks a very special milestone,” said Justin Robinson, Drizly’s SVP of New Business & Co-Founder. “I can’t wait for friends, and friends of friends, to discover how cost effective, transparent, rewarding and convenient Drizly makes shopping for alcohol.
