Liquor store plans office deliveries

SOLLENTUNA, Sweden, Dec. 7 (UPI) -- Sweden's state-run liquor store monopoly announced Friday it will start delivering to workplaces, following a slow start to its home delivery program.

The Systembolaget liquor store said it has received only 100 orders since it began home deliveries in the city of Sollentuna, north of Stockholm, in November -- even after the program was expanded to nearby Bromma and Johanneshov, Swedish news agency TT/The Local.se reported Friday.

Company spokesman Lennart Agen told the Metro newspaper, "It's no surprise to see there's been quite a lot of interest [in office deliveries] so far."

He said the company is still working out the details.

"There are still no decisions as to how many areas in each county will be included," Agen said.
