The online grocery wars show no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

Walmart announced a new grocery pickup milestone: Curbside pickup of select alcohol beverages is now available in 2,000 Walmart locations in 29 states, including California, Texas and Florida.  The discounter will also make deliveries of adult beverages from nearly 200 stores across two states – California and Florida - with more being added in accordance with local and state regulations.

The online program offers a wide variety of wine and beer options.  Depending on local laws, select locations also allow for the pickup of spirits. 

Walmart has been expanding its online alcohol shopping options for  a while. Customers shop the chain’s selection similar to how they do for groceries. But there is one big exception: The customer must provide valid photo identification at the time of pickup verifying that they 21 years of age or older.
