14 Feb ParcelPal Technology, Inc. Announces First Customers for Alcohol Delivery Platform
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – February 14th, 2017 – ParcelPal Technology Inc. (OTC: PTNYF) (CSE: PKG.CN) (FSE:PT0) (“ParcelPal” or the “Company”), a technology driven logistics company that offers on-demand delivery of merchandise from leading retailers, restaurants, medical marijuana dispensaries and liquor stores, is pleased to announce a partnership with North Shore Liquor Shop and Sapperton Liquor Store to offer Vancouver area customers on demand delivery of wine, hard liquor and beer. North Shore and New Westminster residents can now get alcohol delivered straight to their door steps in as little as one hour.
Owner Imroz Rapini has been committed to serving local communities in the Vancouver area since 2012. “The experience doesn’t stop at our stores, we got into this business because we believe beer, wine, and spirt lovers deserve a more enjoyable way to discover great products at great prices. With todays on-demand lifestyle, that means offering same-day delivery. ParcelPal’s unique logistics technology allows us to reach areas we aren’t currently able to service. Having this alternative revenue source not only allows for us to reach a greater market locally, but also expand our product offerings. We have a finite amount of shelf space and walk- in traffic in our stores, and limited resources, so delivery has never been considered a feasible option until now.”
President Kelly Abbott states, “Providing ParcelPal as an online ordering and delivery option will help both locations increase turnover, and create an alternative sales channel. Customers can now conveniently and safely enjoy the stores’ product offerings without leaving the comfort of their homes. As we continue to expand our category offerings, our goal is to make it easier and more convenient for retailers to get themselves online and offer on-demand delivery,”
Customers order alcohol through ParcelPal will be required to provide their date of birth at checkout to confirm they are 19 years or older. In order for alcohol to be delivered, a recipient 19 or older must also be present to sign for the delivery and show proof of legal age with a valid photo ID.
ParcelPal now has platforms live with three verticals – Liquor, Restaurants, and Marijuana Dispensaries – and has customers signed up with each.
