Nation’s leading online alcohol marketplace expands opportunity for on-demand beer, wine, and spirits delivery in under 60 minutes to over two million Oregonians
BOSTON, MA (August 30, 2021) – Just in time for Labor Day Weekend, Drizly, the nation’s first and largest alcohol e-commerce marketplace, today announced a major expansion of its e-commerce and alcohol delivery services throughout Portland and Eugene. It comes with the addition of 17 new retail store partners to Drizly’s network, which provides online shopping and delivery of alcohol to nearly 2.5 million Oregonians of legal drinking age. The expansion substantially broadens Drizly’s ability to serve Portland’s and Eugene’s suburbs, building on its historically strong coverage within the cities themselves.
In Portland, Drizly is expanding 60-minute-or-less delivery in partnership with 205 Gas, Black Rose Market, Cheap Charlie’s, Duke Gas & Food Mart, Evergreen Market, Hillsboro Best Beverage, Progress Grocery & Deli, River Road Mart, St. John’s Deli & Grocery, Triple Crown Food Market, Wholesale Liquors, and one 7-Eleven location. They are expanding in Eugene with Community Market, Fernridge Market, Hilyard Street Market, and two Get N Go Grocery locations. Drizly is also available on-demand in Gresham, Hillsboro, Milwaukie, and Springfield, Oregon.
Additionally, the existing partnership with Pearl Specialty Market now enables statewide shipping throughout Oregon for orders placed through Drizly for the first time.
“We greatly value our local community and always strive to provide our customers with the best possible shopping experience, in-store or online,” said Robert Boland, owner of Hillsboro Best Beverage in Hillsboro. “Our store offers over 800 unique beer choices, over 2,000 distinct spirits and more than 400 wines. Working with Drizly allows us to showcase the full breadth of our inventory and make the shopping experience one of discovery, ease and convenience, with delivery ensured in under an hour.”
“At-home ordering and delivery of alcohol is no longer just a luxury. It is an expected amenity, and there couldn’t be a better time for Drizly to expand within Oregon,” said Dianne Hallock, Director of Retail Marketing at Drizly. “The addition of 17 stores to our network gives more Oregonians more power to shop an incredibly diverse inventory, compare prices, discover a new craft beer or find their favorite local vineyard’s wine for delivery in under 60 minutes.”
Consumers of legal drinking age across Oregon, and a total of 1,400+ cities across North America, can visit Drizly.com or download the Drizly app (App Store and Google Play) to shop inventory from local retailers in their market for beer, wine and spirits delivered on demand.
