AUSTIN (KXAN) — Amazon has now opened up its one and two-hour delivery service to beer and wine in the Austin area, including some local offerings.
The company’s Prime Now app and website let people skip trips to the store and get items delivered for a fee. After purchasing Whole Foods last year, it also began offering free two-hour grocery delivery in Austin for Amazon Prime members. People can also shop on Amazon.com or get items from certain local restaurants delivered.
Alcohol delivery in Austin is available from 8 a.m. to midnight Monday through Saturday, and noon to midnight on Sunday. People can get local items from Austin Eastciders and Independence Austin, as well as Modelo Especial, Shiner Bock and La Marcal brands, among many others.
The beer and wine service will also be available starting Wednesday in Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
