Drizly Launches Connect
Expands Access & Enhances the Way Consumers Shop for Alcohol
May 4, 2016 – Drizly, the technology company transforming the way consumers buy alcohol online across the U.S. and Canada, today announced the launch of Drizly Connect, a new product that gives Drizly users access to the widest selection of alcohol available for next day special order in Boston and Washington, D.C.
Through Connect, Drizly users are no longer restricted by the selection of their local retailer. This new service offers users the ability to shop tens of thousands of products across beer, wine & spirits that are available for delivery as early as the next day.
The launch of Connect marks Drizly's continued push to modernize the alcohol supply chain by shortening the time it takes for consumers to locate and enjoy the products they desire. Connect offers the widest selection of next day products on the Internet all while observing local regulations and respecting the current three-tier system.
“Without Connect, when a customer walks into a liquor store and that retailer doesn't carry the product they want, the customer either settles for something else or leaves empty-handed," said Nick Rellas, CEO and co-founder of Drizly. “Connect gives Drizly users a seemingly endless aisle experience in the palm of their hand available next day, for the first time ever. This is Drizly's next step in evolving the alcohol shopping experience."
Drizly Connect will launch in Boston and Washington, D.C. beginning today, serving close to two million consumers.
