Delivering Alcohol in Different States

Alcohol delivery through Shipt is available in select metros for select retailers. Be sure to check which retailers offer alcohol delivery in your area by using the Where Do You Shipt Shop? button in the top right corner of the Shopper Hub to search for your metro! 

If a metro or retailer is not listed below, alcohol should not be delivered. Alcohol also cannot be delivered if the ID Scan label is not present on the order. If you see a special request for an alcohol item, or the customer requests alcohol via text or call and the ID Scan label () is not present on the order, kindly let them know you are not able to deliver that item.

Alcohol delivery for Prepaid orders from Target or Meijer is only available in select metros.*
*Note: Alcohol is available for delivery on Meijer Prepaid orders in Michigan and Ohio only, and on Target Prepaid orders in CA, FL, HI, IL, KY, MI, MO, NC, TN, and TX metros. Do note that alcohol cannot be added as a special request if the order has not been flagged as an ID Scan order.



Delivering Alcohol in Different States

It is important to note that each metro may have specific legal requirements for alcohol delivery based on state regulations (see below). For example, some states legally require printed permits to be in shopper vehicles when delivering orders with alcohol.
