Amazon Prime Now alcohol delivery coming to Ohio

Amazon Prime Now alcohol delivery coming to Ohio

COLUMBUS, OH (WOIO) - Amazon has added alcohol to its Prime Now service in a couple of major Ohio cities.

The service, so far, has been added to Prime Now in Cincinnati and Columbus.

According to a statement from the company, though the plan is to expand the service rapidly, it's unclear whether that includes Cleveland in the near future.

As far ensuring the buyer is 21 or older, here's the rest of that statement from Amazon:

As for how Amazon ensures alcohol purchases are only sold to customers 21 and over, Prime Now takes multiple precautions to ensure that alcohol purchases are made and delivered legally. Our drivers who deliver alcohol receive special training  including a multi-step process to check customer IDs when the product is delivered.
