BOSTON, March 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Drizly, Inc., the smartphone app for fast alcohol delivery, today continued its American expansion with announcements that it is the first service of its kind to deliver in Brooklyn; and that the Drizly app is now available for Android phones via Google Play.
As a special welcome to Brooklyn, new Drizly users can enter WELCOMENY for $10 off any order.
For consumers of legal age, Drizly is like having a liquor store on their smartphone; with the largest retail delivery network in New York, Drizly is the fastest, most convenient way for consumers in Williamsburg, Fort Greene, Brooklyn Heights, Dumbo, Park Slope and Boerum Hill to get alcohol delivered in just 20-40 minutes. Products on Drizly even cost the same as they do in the liquor store.
"Why go to the liquor store when the liquor store will come to you for the same price?" asked Nick Rellas, founder and CEO of Drizly. "After having such success with Drizly's Manhattan launch, rapidly expanding into Brooklyn was a natural. We are so excited to deliver speed, convenience and selection to the legal drinkers of Brooklyn."
