There’s a new way to get all the booze you want delivered in Metro Vancouver


Listen up, party people: Liquor Barn and Liquor Depot are now part of an online liquor delivery service across the lower mainland, which means for one flat fee, you can order as much booze as you need and have it at your door within an hour.

The online service will be run through the on-demand retail liquor delivery platform Drizly, which already is offering their service in over 100 markets across North America.

There are seven stores in the Liquor Depot/Liquor Barn family in Metro Vancouver that will have the service available as of 2 pm Thursday, November 8: Abbotsford, Surrey, Richmond, Burnaby, Point Grey (Vancouver), Coquitlam and Cambie (Vancouver).

A few key details: Prices are the same online as in-store. Minimum purchase is $20, but “there’s no limit on how much customers can purchase,” (besides the usual constraint of “how much can fit in the delivery vehicle,”) according to a media release. The flat-rate delivery fee is $4.99.

As a wonderful plus for actual party people, i.e. people throwing a party, you can also schedule your delivery ahead of time, too.

Liquor Depot and Liquor Barn launched delivery in 2016 in Alberta, and have been looking to expand the offering to B.C. for some time now. Drizly launched in 2012 in the U.S.
