Sam’s Club has announced that some of its shoppers using Instacart can now receive same-day alcohol delivery.

The service is now available in more than 200 locations in select markets, with plans to expand to additional locations in the coming months. The delivery options allow customers to get any of the hundreds of Sam’s Club’s alcohol options – including Member’s Mark Sangria, Member’s Mark Asolo-Prosecco and Member’s Mark Moscato D'Asti, as well as member favorites like Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, Modelo Especial and Tito’s Handmade Vodka – in as fast as one hour.

Customers ordering alcohol via Instacart must be 21 or older and are required to enter their date of birth at checkout, as well as present a valid government ID at the time of delivery.

Sam’s Club is focused on offering quality products, unexpected finds and better customer experiences,” said Racquel Harris, the company’s vice president, adult beverage, in a press release. “Now you can select the perfect bottle of wine to complement your dinner or stock up on your favorite beer or spirits for the big game with the convenience of delivery.”

In addition, the companies have expanded their same-day, online grocery delivery to include all U.S. Sam’s Club locations, which will allow all U.S.-based customers to shop their local Sam’s Club via Instacart.

Instacart is proud to collaborate with Sam’s Club to provide wine, beer and spirits delivery for their valued members. By extending our marketplace categories, we’re making it even easier for customers to shop from Sam’s Club for all their needs – from groceries and household essentials to alcohol,” said Andrew Nodes, Instacart’s vice president of retail. “We’re proud to have grown our relationship with Sam’s Club to include its clubs across the U.S., helping members across the country get the groceries they need in as fast as an hour.”
