Going to the liquor store is always an errand that has great payoff, but we hate doing it. Now, Uber Eats is officially taking this chore off residents of the Lower Mainland’s to-do list.
The food delivery service announced that it will be offering alcohol delivery starting today at noon, August 1, for customers in Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby, and New Westminster.
This means Uber Eats users can order local craft beer (like Parallel 49), BC wine, and a selection of products from around the world to pair with their grub ordered through the popular app.
In order to regulate alcohol delivery, and make sure it’s done safely Uber has set up policies to ensure the sobriety of the customer before completing the delivery.
Uber Eats will also be offering this service to the rest of Metro Vancouver along with Victoria, Esquimalt, and Saanich in the next few weeks.
The delivery service will continue to offer free delivery for all items as a summer promotion, this now applies to both food and alcohol until the end of August.
