Aptly timed for March Madness and the start of baseball season, St. Louis-based grocery retailer Schnucks Markets is serving up some boozy extras within its delivery offering in partnership with Instacart.
Starting immediately, Schnucks Delivers customers can add beer, wine and spirits to their regular Instacart orders in Missouri and Illinois, where permissible by law. Customers accepting liquor delivery must be at least 21 years old, with a valid ID.
“Since we launched Schnucks Delivers more than two years ago, many shoppers have requested that we add their favorite adult beverages to the platform,” said Schnucks Chief Business Development and Transformation Officer Ryan Cuba in a statement. “The expansion of products available through Schnucks Delivers is another way that we’re helping our customers better manage their busy lifestyles.”
Schnucks Delivers is available seven days a week for as little as $3.99 (plus applicable fees) for a single order. Alcohol delivery will be subject to a service fee that covers the additional cost of ensuring compliant delivery of alcohol products and ID verification. This service fee ranges from $2 (if the order includes less than $35 of alcohol) to $10 (if the order includes more than $110 of alcohol.) Groceries can be delivered the same day they are ordered, sometimes in as little as an hour, and orders can be placed at Schnucksdelivers.com.
