3/23/20 Super Buy Rite Liquors (on the Circle) MEMO: Re-opening In-Store Shopping. While we still prefer that customers order through our app and website for both curbside/parking lot pickup and delivery, at this time we have decided to allow 10 customers to enter the store at a time for in-store shopping. Once we hit capacity, it will be a strict 1-in/1-out policy. We will have an employee at the entrance giving guidance on current capacity.

Please try not to shop in groups in order to maintain a safe distance from others and help our ten person minimum. This will allow us to control the customer flow inside the store, and we ask that everyone still practice safe social distancing while inside the store.  1. To place your order, please visit our website (www.buyrite.wine) or download our app, which both provide real-time inventory for both Hamilton and Hopewell stores. Our app is available through Google Play and the Apple App Store.2. When we receive your order, you will receive a confirmation email.3. We encourage you to order “In-Store Pickup” (curbside pickup) for an overall smoother and faster shopping experience. As usual for deliveries, we will call you to confirm that our driver is leaving with your order, giving you a window of ETA. See the website for more information about pick up and delivery.
