Customers using online service must still have valid alcohol licence
MMI and African & Eastern have launched home delivery services in Dubai.
Both companies issued statements on their respective social media sites. The posts said: “Your favourite drinks will be delivered to your doorstep soon… Stay tuned!”
It marks the first time either liquor store has provided a home delivery service, although MMI has stressed that potential purchasers still require an alcohol licence in order to use the service.
MMI, a subsidiary of The Emirates Group (the company that also includes Emirates airline and travel operator Dnata) since 1983, and African + Eastern, a privately held company which was established in 1962 by Unilever Arabia, are the two biggest liquor operators in the UAE.
Last year, Dubai announced that it was relaxing its tight liquor laws to allow tourists to buy alcohol in stores, as the UAE witnessed its first drop in alcohol sales by volume in a decade.
