Vancouver first in Canada to get new SkipTheDishes liquor delivery service

WINNIPEG, June 15, 2017 /CNW/ - Reliable liquor delivery is now available in Vancouver thanks to SkipTheDishes, the city's leading restaurant delivery app. Canada's own SkipTheDishes already boasts the most advanced delivery technology in the industry, and now applies its world-leading tech to delivering top-selling wines, beers, and spirits to consumers in Vancouver. Vancouverites will be the first in Canada to access SkipTheDishes liquor delivery through the app or website which offer a number of stores such as Firefly Fine Wines & Ales and Berezan. SkipTheDishes' proprietary GPS order tracker enables customers to see every move their order makes from pick-up to delivery on a map, along with a live delivery time. The delivery fee for all liquor stores is only $1.99.

"We've noticed that of all Canadians, Vancouverites tend to be early adopters of technology – especially mobile tech that saves time and offers this level of convenience," says Andrew Chau, SkipTheDishes Co-Founder and liquor delivery lead. "We deliver more restaurant meals than anyone in the city so it made perfect sense to add liquor stores to our network. Now you can order a meal and your favourite bottle of wine all within the SkipTheDishes app. Whether you're having a get-together with friends or a couple's night in, SkipTheDishes liquor delivery has you covered."

To order, customers must download the SkipTheDishes app for iOS or Android or go to the website, and input their address to get a list of liquor stores that deliver to them.  There are no minimum order requirements, and payment is made directly on the app or website. Customers must be of age to order and provide ID at the time of delivery.

With multiple liquor store partners on the SkipTheDishes network, the service currently covers Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam and Surrey with more areas in British Columbia to come throughout the summer.  A nationwide roll-out of liquor delivery to other Canadian and US markets is planned for the coming months.
