The big online delivery opportunity in 2020 – Alcohol

Companies from Amazon.com Inc. to Walmart Inc. are finding that fresh-grocery delivery is challenging. But there’s one niche of the market that seems ripe with opportunity in 2020: booze.

The opportunity is clear: The volume of liquor sold online in the U.S. should more than quadruple by 2024, reaching an estimated value of $13.4 billion, according to researcher IWSR. To take advantage of it, retailers will have to navigate thorny U.S. regulations that make scaling up tough.

Now making it easier to get drunk and addicted to alcohol. Wonderful.

Will the delivery person check the bona-fides of the buyer, or will they rely on an ID number? Other people's IDs are easy to obtain

I wish they would deliver after hours - when the booze runs out is when you really need the service!

I think Google maps should show the locations of shebeens, plus driving directions both ways. I know of 2 in my area and a huge one 15 mins drive away, offering 24 hour service

What about the poor people unable to get a drink because its all gone? Surely that is discrimination?

At least our local SPAR Tops is open 7 days a week
