Posted on January 05, 2021

BOSTON, MA (January 5, 2021) – Drizly, the nation’s largest alcohol e-commerce marketplace, announced today that its on-demand delivery service is now available in Atlanta. The expansion follows the recent legalization of online alcohol sales and delivery in Georgia and an explosive year of growth for the e-commerce alcohol category overall, with Drizly specifically experiencing sales growth of 350% year-over-year. Drizly goes live in Atlanta after forming partnerships with some of the city’s best-known adult beverage retailers, making delivery in under 60 minutes available to the 4.4 million adults of legal drinking age within the city and surrounding suburbs.

Drizly’s initial partner retailers in Atlanta include: A&M Beverage Company, ABC Package, Atlanta Package, Fairington Wine & Spirits, HD Wine Spirits+, Canton Package, Johns Creek Wine & Crystal, Pinkies Up Beer, Racetrack Foodmart, Savi Provisions, Side Door Liquors, The Savvy Cellars, Tower Beer, Wine & Spirits and Tucker Wine, Beer & Spirits.

As the longtime established leader in the rapidly expanding alcohol e-commerce industry, Drizly connects consumers to their local liquor stores online, allowing them to shop a broad range of beer, wine, and spirits across stores and get delivery to their door in under 60 minutes. By state mandate, adult beverage retailers planning to handle alcohol delivery are required to have store personnel complete training protocols. Drizly is available to answer questions about the requirements and how to satisfy them.

We know in these unprecedented times that consumers are looking to delivery services as a safer alternative and that this offering can be a critical diversification strategy for retailers to grow their business. We are looking forward to teaming up with our local partners to now bring that service to Atlanta residents, just in time for the new year.”
