Drizly, one of the country’s largest alcohol e-commerce services, expanded its network again to include Jacksonville, Fla., with the addition of six stores in Metro Jacksonville and three locations in Jacksonville Beach. All nine stores are owned by ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Florida’s largest and oldest privately-held wine and spirits retailer.
This addition of ABC stores doubles Drizly’s store count in Jacksonville and increases its already 1,250-location strong national retail network, bringing alcohol delivery to approximately 180,000 more residents of legal drinking age in Jacksonville.
Through ABC and other best-in-class retailers, Drizly offers adults of legal drinking age the widest selection of beer, wine and spirits and the convenience of delivery in under 60 minutes through Drizly.com and the Drizly app.
“Jacksonville embraced online alcohol shopping from the moment our network went live here in 2016, and ABC was a big part of that success right from the start,” said Scott Braun, Chief Marketing Officer at Drizly. “It’s great to build on that mutual success and bring the most extensive inventory and convenient, under-60-minute delivery to even more residents of Jacksonville.”
Orders placed on Drizly in Jacksonville grew by nearly 60 percent during its first year in the city.
Drizly users shopping ABC’s extensive inventory can now also access the retailer’s “Sourced & Certified” private label collection of unique, premium-quality wine and spirits hand selected across the globe by ABC’s experts at exclusive prices. Drizly shoppers can also browse and buy ABC’s unique bar accessories and exclusive bundle options.
“The overwhelmingly positive experience of ABC locations already on the Drizly platform made bringing another nine stores onboard a natural next step,” said Andy Abernathy, Senior Vice President of Business Development of ABC Fine Wine & Spirits.
Beyond Jacksonville, Drizly brings on-demand alcohol delivery to Florida consumers of legal drinking age through over fifty ABC locations.
Drizly equips all retailer partners with technology to reliably and responsibly offer delivery services, including proprietary ID verification technology that enables store personnel to scan and verify IDs, with accuracy that goes well beyond a manual review. Drizly provides customers in over 100 markets across North America the ability to shop from their local retailers anywhere, anytime right from their phones.
