Drizly, the smartphone app for fast, convenient alcohol delivery, launches in the Windy City

CHICAGO, May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --There's never been a more convenient way to buy alcohol in Chicago. 

Drizly is a smartphone app for fast, convenient alcohol delivery.  The company today announced expansion into the city of Chicago, in addition to its service in NYC, Brooklyn and Boston.

Drizly, Inc., the smartphone app powering fast, convenient alcohol delivery, today continues its rapid expansion in the United States with the announcement of service to all major areas of Chicago.  The Windy City now joins New York City, Brooklyn and Boston as major metropolitan areas currently serviced by Drizly.

Service areas at launch in Chicago include South Loop, Loop, West Loop, River North, Gold Coast, Streeterville, Wrigleyville, Lakeview, Old Town, Lincoln Park, Wicker Park and Bucktown.  Hours of delivery are subject to variability based on Drizly's retail partner network.

For consumers of legal age, Drizly is like having a liquor store on their smartphone. With the largest retail delivery partner network, Drizly is the smartest way for Chicago drinkers to buy a huge selection of alcoholic beverages and have them conveniently delivered in just 20-40 minutes.  Products on Drizly even cost the same as they do in the local liquor store.

"Chicagoans are ready for a smarter way to purchase alcohol," said Nick Rellas, co-founder and CEO of Drizly.  "Why go to the liquor store when Drizly brings the huge selection and great prices of the local liquor store to you?  Let us save you the hassle of finding parking, or lugging heavy bottles home."

Drizly is available for download on iPhone and Android.  As a special welcome to Chicago drinkers, new Drizly members can enter WELCOMECHI at checkout for $10 off any order placed in May. They can also follow @DrizlyChi on Twitter and Instagram for the latest local updates, events and promotions.
