Drizly Enters Market

Posted By on Thu, Jan 4, 2018 at 2:52 PM


Drizly, an online alcohol market, is now operating in Memphis.

Customers can order beer, wine, or spirits online or via an app, which can be delivered within the hour or picked up in-store. 

Drizly's retail partners are Buster's and Arthur's.

According to Blaine Grinna, Drizly started after two Boston College graduates wondered why there was no alcohol delivery. They figured it was illegal. They then set out to figure out the legal arcania, going state by state.

Drizly now operates in 70 cities, according to Grinna.

One reason they picked Buster's and Arthur's for their partners was because both stores are able to track their inventory.

Grinna says what sets Drizly apart from other online retailers is their geographic reach and their multiple retailers.

Retailers set the prices. (A six pack of Heineken will set you back $9.99.) And delivery is a set $5 per order. Delivery stretches from downtown into Germantown.

According to Drizly’s sales data, the top selling items in Memphis are Tito’s Vodka, Miller Lite, and La Marca Prosecco.
