All Shipments Carried And Insured By UPS or Fedex
All shipments out of state are carried by UPS or Fedex with "Adult Signature Reuired" service which requires an adult 21 or over be present to sign for the package. All orders are fully insured and should your package become damaged in transit, a refund or replacement will be issued upon notification from the carrier. Merwin Liquors requires photographs of any damage, but will otherwise handle the claims process for you. All shipping fees include the Adult Signature Required and Insurance service fees from the carrier. All rates displayed are automatically calculated based on current UPS rate tables at checkout.
Common Carrier Delivery Procedures
Carriers will attempt delivery of your order three times before returning the order to us. Because an adult needs to present ID and provide a signature, they are unable to simply leave packages. If you need to change the delivery address after the package has been released to to the carrier, the fee associated with re-routing your package will be passed through to you.
All orders delivered into the state of Minnesota are subject to Minneapolis sales tax of 10.275%.
Merwin Liquors does not collect sales tax for orders shipped outside of the state of Minnesota. The buyer receiving an order shipped out of the state is solely responsible for payment of any taxes or fees associated with any purchases made from this website.
Canceled, Returned, Refused or Undeliverable Shipments
In the event that you cancel or return an order after it has been packaged or delivered or if an order is refused or undeliverable, a credit will be issued back to the original payment source, less any shipping and handling charges and a 25% restocking fee.
Availability and Vintage Substitution
Although we are usually able to ship orders expeditiously, occasionally demand for a particular product will deplete our inventory. In this instance, the item will be placed on backorder and your order status will be updated to reflect this. Occasionally, inventory of a specific wine vintage becomes unavailable and Merwin Liquors reserves the right to substitute the currently available vintage unless specifically noted by the customer otherwise.
Please note that many of the items in our "Current Specials" area are limited availability or closeout items with limited availability. As with all items we offer online, inventory levels for items may vary and as such we may not be able to fill your entire order or we may be forced to additional inventory at a higher cost to complete your order. In these instances, you will be contacted prior to any action being taken and given you the option to accept the price increase or cancel the order with no penalty or charge.
Images are Illustrative Only
All images are for illustrative purposes only. Actual packaging may differ from the image. Correct package size is listed on the item description and should not necessarily be inferred by the image displayed.
Upon delivery of the order, the customer has 5 business days to report defective products to Merwin Liquors. If the product is defective (for example a bad bottle of wine), customer may return the merchandise for replacement.
