SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wine.com, the nation's leading online wine retailer, announced that it has tripled the number of pickup locations to more than 10,000 sites nationwide. This includes nearly 1,000 in California and over 500 in New York – both states where Wine.com now offers a larger selection of wine than any other store. With this delivery option, customers don't have to worry about being home to sign for delivery and can pick up their wine at their convenience. Local pickup service has expanded beyond FedEx Office locations to include Walgreens, Duane Reade, Safeway, Shaws, Jewel-Osco, Albertsons, Fred Meyer and more.
Since wine requires a signature from someone over 21 years old, being home to wait for a delivery can be inconvenient for those who spend most of their day out of the house. This expansion means more locations and more flexible hours for pick up. Most pickup locations are open nights and weekends with many offering 24/7 availability. Your nearest local pickup sites can be found during the Wine.com checkout process.
Wine.com is the only online wine retailer that offers both date-specific delivery as well as local pickup options. "Customers love our massive selection, deep wine content, live chat sommeliers and free shipping membership," said Rich Bergsund, Wine.com CEO. "Now we'll deliver to a location near you, for pickup on your schedule — no more waiting to sign for your wine delivery. I use Wine.com local pickup for all my wine deliveries."
Customer adoption to date has been strong with more than half a million bottles delivered via Wine.com's local pickup service. With this next phase of growth, customers have more local pickup options in closer proximity than ever before — ensuring most Wine.com customers have a pickup site at least as close as their nearest specialty wine shop.
