The FRS provides a Site for the purpose of assisting consumers connect to Retailers to engage in the sale, service, and delivery of alcoholic beverage products (the “Products”) by Retailers. All orders placed are reviewed, accepted and ultimately fulfilled by licensed alcohol beverage retailers (the “Retailer(s)”). The FRS does not itself provide or sell alcoholic beverages or transport alcoholic beverages and is not a licensed alcohol beverage retailer or carrier. The FRS assists in your fulfillment of orders through Retailers. The Products will be shipped to you directly by a Retailer, not the FRS.
Shipping and Delivery Restrictions:
We reserve the right to ask for proof of identity before assisting you with your purchase through a Retailer. The Retailer and its common carrier, if applicable, will require an adult signature with proof of age verification at the time of delivery. Retailers do not ship to PO Boxes.
Shipping and Delivery Policy:
Orders placed are expected to ship within four (4) business days. If you would like assistance with an overnight order and or for your order to be shipped on the same day, please contact Sarasota Liquor Locker directly before placing the order by phone: 941-377-5477.
Retailers general ship via several courier services, such as UPS or Fedex. These companies will email a tracking number to you upon pickup from the Retailer. Due to Federal Aviation Administration regulations Retailers are not able to provide overnight shipping for Products that contain 70% ABV or higher. During times of inclement weather, including extreme heat or cold, We recommend shipping overnight to reduce the time in transit or postponing until conditions improve. The purchaser assumes all liability for wines/spirits damaged en route due to weather.
Retailers generally do not ship on weekends or government holidays though may process orders at night and on weekends. If you receive a “Shipping Confirmation” email after 5PM EST on a weekend or holiday, it means the Retailer has processed and packed your order; however, the courier service will ship it on the next business day.
Once a purchase of the Products is made from a Retailer, you assume title and ownership of the wines/spirits. By arranging transportation, the Retailer is providing a service to you and acting on your behalf. You are solely responsible for determining the legality and tax consequences of having wines/spirits shipped to you.
Certain states prohibit the direct importation of alcohol from certain other states. Orders placed for address within those states may be canceled and you will be issued a complete refund. It is your responsibility to know whether you may receive shipments from out-of-state Retailers. The FRS makes no representation as to any laws, rules or regulations regarding the sale, service, transportation or delivery of alcoholic beverages to you.

All orders over $500, where the billing and shipping addresses do not match, including gift purchases, will require additional time for credit card authorization. Orders paid by electronic check or PayPal will be shipped after the funds have cleared. International customers who are purchasing gifts for friends and family within the United States must pay through a “confirmed” PayPal account. We are not able to accept credit cards for international transactions.
The FRS guarantees that your payment, less its fees, will be used to purchase and ship the Products from the Retailer to the address that you indicate.
Price List/Typographical Errors:
In the event that a Product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, as determined by the FRS in its sole discretion, We reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for the Product listed at the incorrect price whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is cancelled, We will issue a credit to your credit card account for the amount paid.
