Online liquor delivery company Drizly announced on September 2 that it was launching a service in Jacksonville and St. Augustine to deliver beer, wine and spirits in under an hour.
The service is in partnership with Shores Liquor, which has 13 stores in Northeast Florida.
“With Drizly, we can showcase the depth of our inventory on one platform and allow people to buy, compare, and make the right choices for themselves, or even do some research before visiting one. of our stores, ”said Sam Leach, returning office manager of Shores Liquor, in a press release.
Drizly said the service will reach more than 650,000 adults of legal drinking age in the region.
“Great online shopping experiences and the convenience of delivery have become an expectation for shoppers, making this the perfect time to launch Drizly in Jacksonville,” said Dianne Hallock, Director of Retail Marketing at Drizly, in the press release.
“The partnership with Shores Liquor puts their wide range of beers, wines and spirits at their fingertips, further delighting their customers and providing a strong growth opportunity for their business. “
Adults of legal drinking age can shop using the Drizly app or website.
For example, a 750ml bottle of Gray Goose Vodka delivered downtown costs $ 24.99 with a delivery charge of $ 7.99.
Drizly also offers same-day delivery from other Northeast Florida stores, including ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, but not as quickly. Shipping costs for these may be lower.
