BEVMO! ROLLS OUT ONE HOUR-DELIVERY SERVICE WITHIN SAN FRANCISCO
Beverage Retailer Guarantees 60-Minute Doorstop Delivery For A Flat Fee Of $11.95
SAN FRANCISCO, CA. (July 9, 2018) – Three months after testing a curbside delivery program where orders are brought directly to a driver’s door in the parking lot, BevMo! will now hand-deliver orders straight to a customer’s front door within one hour for a flat fee of $11.95.
The new one-hour delivery service hits the road this week and is available only to those living within the San Francisco city limits. The California based retailer guarantees that all orders will arrive within 60 minutes or the fee will be waived.
“Even though we have three great locations within the city, sometimes it’s just easier to have a case of wine, or your favorite beers and spirits, delivered directly to your doorstep,” said Dimitri Haloulos, CEO of BevMo! “We’re making beverage shopping as convenient as possible.”
All orders must originate online at bevmo.com under the “Deliver It To Me” selection on the home page. The one-hour delivery service is available seven days a week, with the last order of the day accepted up until one hour before the store closes. There are no restrictions on what can be ordered other than kegs of beer, which are not included in the service.
Upon arrival, customers will need to show proof that they are at least 21 years old. BevMo! is testing the new one-hour delivery feature in the city, with the hopes of expanding its parameters to communities outside the city in the near future.
Back in April, BevMo! launched a curbside pick-up program at its Van Ness Ave. location in San Francisco, where a specially designated parking spot is reserved for those opting to have their online order delivered straight to their vehicle upon arrival. There is no fee for this service. The company may expand the curbside pick-up program to other stores and cities later this year.
“This is a continuation of our mission to utilize technology and the human touch to make our customers’ shopping experience as effortless and expedient as possible. Our customers are embracing this ‘pick, click and go’ approach to shopping, and we feel San Francisco is the ideal place to introduce and test these types of innovations,” said Haloulos.
