At least at one point in your life you've been faced with a scenario where you've forgotten to grab enough booze for a night out, and with every LCBO/ Beer Store/ Loblaws in the area closed, you are left with nothing. Though it seems that if you live in the Toronto area, a new app has solved that very problem for good.
FFetch recently launched earlier this month, and probably the easiest way to define it would be a Canadian version of Postmates on a smaller scale. The app aims to give users an experience similar to where you can order anything you would typically get at a convenience (think tobacco, snacks, even condoms). No matter what time or where you are (though at the moment alcohol and tobacco deliveries are exclusive to the Toronto area). After ordering you can track the delivery up to your door and there you have it!
Apart from a great range of selection (everything from champagne to even offering international snacks), they've also got tons of payment methods if you were looking to pay for your order with anything from Apple Pay to Bitcoin.
To celebrate the recent launch, the FFetch team is offering free deliveries all throughout January, so it's the perfect time to test out the app for yourself. It's currently available both on the Apple app store and Google Play.

"I just thought it would bounce around between friends and family. I had no idea it would blow up like this...must be a lot of golfers in Ontario," he added.
In a press conference on Thursday, the premier stated that while the next few weeks will continue to see businesses and gatherings shuttered, Ontarians shouldn't lose hope for a normal July and August.
"My goal is to have the most normal July and August possible," he states. "Obviously, that won't mean large sporting events or concerts."
"But, if we manage the next few weeks properly, I believe that we can have things in a very good place this summer."
On top of this, the premier also states that they working on getting everyone vaccinated as quickly as possible, in order to reduce cases and lift restrictions.
"If we get the supply, we will work our backs off to have a two-dose summer, instead of a one-dose summer."
