If you need a gift in a hurry and you know your recipient enjoys a good Scotch Whiskey, the usual routine is to run to the nearest liquor retailer, buy the Scotch Whiskey and bring it home liquor. This is not the end. Now you have to get a strong gift box and a lot of bubblewrap to keep it all in one piece during shipping. Now you make the run to the post office to send it out and pay an unearthly sum for the service hoping it gets there in original form and in time. I hope the person getting this liquor gift is special enough for all that you have gone through.
There is an easier way to get this done. Go to your nearest computer and check out online liquor store, choose your liquor gift, call them and place the order, give them the address and they do the rest.
It is just as hectic to stock your own liquor cabinet from the nearby liquor store. The routine is a little different but not much. Now you have to go up and down the aisles searching for what you want and if your lucky you may find a clerk that will tell you where it is. You fill the shopping cart and stand in line to get checked out and pay for it including the liquor taxes where applicable. You have it put in boxes and put into the trunk of your car and all the way home you hope you don’t hit a bump. You finally get it all home without any mishaps and sit down to take a deep breath and rest.
There is an easier way to do this too. You can sit comfortably at your computer with a list of what you need and contact a liquor store online. You can place your order and know that you will get what you want. If what you want is out of stock you will be told that it is on the screen before placing your order. You pay for it using your credit card or debit card, tell them where to send it and it’s on its way.
Perhaps you think that the shipping and handling from the online liquor store is outrageously high. If you do think it is high then think about this. The cost of gas going to the liquor store, the liquor tax and state tax your state charges, the tip for the person that takes it out and packs it into the car and the gas back home. We have not even considered the cost of your time running up and down the aisles and the aggravation in trying to find a knowledgeable clerk. After all, time is money. When you add all of this together it is probably more or equal to the shipping and handling amount. Analyze the two alternatives: sending a liquor gift; and stocking your own supply; you will opt for the online liquor store. Liquor cabinet can add beauty and elegance to your home interior design.
