Imagine this: You’re at a party having good time. You’ve thrown back a few drinks and all of a sudden, you hear the words you never want to hear at an adult party.
“The booze is gone!”
You look at your watch, or cellphone because no one wears a watch anymore to ACTUALLY tell time, and realize that it is only 10:30 and you want to party some more. Everyone is way too drunk to drive and the liquor store is way too far away for you to walk. Now the party is screwed and you can’t go home. This night sucks.
Not anymore. Amazon is planning on offering a one-hour alcohol delivery service. Well, it’s only for those lucky enough to live in Seattle, Washington, but heck it’s a start. BroBible reported this wonderful news and it’s not as complicated as it sounds.
Per a press release from Amazon:
“Prime Now is our fastest delivery option ever. With Prime Now, you can skip a trip to the store and get the items you need delivered right to your door in under an hour,” said Stephenie Landry, director of Amazon’s Prime Now service. “Customers love the convenience of one-hour delivery and we’re excited to bring Prime Now to our hometown customers in Seattle and surrounding areas.”
Prime Now launched in select Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond and Kirkland zip codes today and is expanding rapidly to additional zip codes. Prime members can download the Prime Now app, available on iOS and Android devices, and be notified when the service is available in their area. In Seattle and surrounding areas, Prime Now delivers from 8 a.m. to midnight, seven days a week. Two-hour delivery is free and one-hour delivery is available for $7.99.
This is just going to make some people even bigger alcoholics than they were before this was around. At least this may keep drunks out of their cars and off the roads in the future.
Good job, Amazon.
