Amazon starts alcohol deliveries to Prime Now customers in Twin Cities
Amazon.com Inc. started delivery of beer, wine and liquor in the Twin Cities Thursday in partnership with Surdyk’s Liquor & Cheese Shop, a fixture in northeast Minneapolis for eight decades.
By noon, the flow of orders had topped expectations and Amazon asked Surdyk’s whether it could expand a limit Amazon had set of 40 per hour.
“I said yes,” said Melissa Surdyk, a fourth-generation member of the founding family. “We have the people to help, and we’ve been able to pick [orders] quickly.”
