Ultra, the only service that can deliver alcoholic beverages from liquor stores within an hour, launched last week in Hoboken and Jersey City in beta.
Ultra is the first company in Hoboken and Jersey City to offer sub-one hour delivery service for alcohol and will soon offer the broadest selection of wine, beer and spirits selection in the area.
Originally launched in New York City, Ultra has combined the convenience of delivery with the availability of thousands of products from local liquor stores to revolutionize how people buy and consume alcohol. All orders are processed and delivered by the local liquor stores. This minimizes the long delivery time normally associated with the online wine and liquor purchases.
Ultra selects liquor store partners that provide stock large number of products and provide fast delivery turnaround. The service quickly became a favorite among New Yorkers for its convenience, speed and selection.
Hoboken and Jersey City area is one of the first of 15 cities Ultra plans to expand into by the end of 2014.
"We look for urban areas with tech-savvy and gastronomically inclined consumers who value convenience," said Aniket Shah, CEO and founder of Ultra. "Hoboken and Jersey City fits the bill. We're really excited to expand our footprint. There's a lot more to come."
