So perhaps honesty was my downfall this afternoon…
After waiting in line for 10 minutes with my “Large Flat Rate” box in hand, the guy at the Post Office asks me, “Any liquids or yadda, yadda, yadda?” I mistakenly repied that, indeed, I was shipping a few beers.
He became visibly alarmed and informed me that its illegal to mail beer.
So…on to the UPS store down the road in lovely Golden Valley, MN. The gentleman there told me the same thing…that UPs “stores” cannot ship alcohol. He added that if I wanted to drive to a “distribution hub” they could probably help me out. He thought this was a Minnesota regulation.
Has anyone else run into this? Perhaps the UPS prohibition is state-specific?
Ultimately I probably should have answered “no” to the guy at the PO.
What about Fed Ex?
