Amazon plans to expand their sales of wine beyond their Prime Now delivery service by setting up a liquor store in San Francisco. Amazon launched online wine sales in 2012 and started delivering wine with their Prime Now service in 2015. The San Francisco Business Times’ Business Insider reported that Amazon applied to the city’s Board of Supervisors to obtain a license that will allow them to set up a liquor store in San Francisco. The store will operate as a traditional liquor store and serve as a delivery hub for Prime Now deliveries.
