EDMONTON, Alberta, May 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alcanna Inc. (the “Company” or “Alcanna”) (TSX: CLIQ) today announced that it has developed and launched an express delivery service for liquor in Edmonton, Calgary, and Greater Vancouver. Developed internally by Alcanna’s Business Technology team, the Express Delivery App will allow Alcanna to deliver up to 700 different spirits, beer and wine to legal-age customers usually in less than one hour.
By simply downloading the free Liquor Depot app on iTunes, Google Play or by visiting LiquorDepot.ca, customers will find a shopping experience that is informative, customized and easy. The express delivery service compliments our already successful Click & Pick and next day home delivery services which provide customers a selection of up to 7,000 different products.
“Alcanna sees our digital and ecommerce strategy as critical to the future development of our business,” said James Burns, Vice Chair and CEO. “Customers’ expectations of convenience and full service no longer exists within the four walls of our retail stores. Reliable and inexpensive home delivery is a great differentiator for Liquor Depot and Wine and Beyond in these 3 major cities. The Express Delivery App is the latest addition and more innovations in which the digitalization of retail will be integrated in our operations will follow in the coming months.”
