Lee’s Discount Liquor offering delivery service in Las Vegas

Las Vegas residents seeking to restock their liquor cabinets during the statewide COVID-19 shutdown need not venture much farther than their front door.

Lee’s Discount Liquor, whose valley retail stores closed March 22, will kick off home delivery sales Saturday in the city of Las Vegas.

Interested customers 21 and older can place orders by calling 702-451-0100 or visiting the chain’s website. Lee’s will verify the age by matching the identification for the person answering the door to the credit card used for the purchase.

“This morning Mr. Lee got a call from the city of Las Vegas saying they would allow delivery from our locations in the city of Las Vegas to the city of Las Vegas,” said Jim O’Connor, executive vice president of operations for Lee’s. “Prior to this we haven’t been in the delivery business, so we’re trying to walk before we run. We are taking advantage of the city’s generosity and we’re getting into the delivery business.”

Las Vegas City Councilman Stavros Anthony confirmed to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that Lee’s will offer liquor deliveries, saying the company was eligible for a temporary permit similar to those given to grocery stores delivering food.

Lee’s said it received dozens of orders within the first hour of accepting them on its website. With the system being new, O’Connor asked the public to bear with the company as it figures out this new avenue.

Most deliveries will come with a $10 delivery charge, but orders of over $200 will be delivered for free. A credit card or debit card will be required.

Each delivery will feature a driver and a delivery person to increase employees’ safety, O’Connor said.

Las Vegas was the first jurisdiction to allow restaurants to include alcoholic beverages in restaurant to-go orders; Clark County and Henderson followed. O’Connor hopes to eventually deliver alcohol across the valley.

“We’re not trying to get in the way of the governor’s stay-at-home routine. As a matter of fact, we applaud that,” O’Connor said. “The other day I sat in our conference room and literally watched 50 cars drive up to our door, get out of their cars and get right back in them and leave. I know there’s a customer out there who wants to have a glass of wine with their dinner.

“I think what we would do by allowing us to deliver is take some heat off the grocery stores that have people going in there when they can get it some other way,” he said.
