Knoxville Room Service (KRS) Frequently Asked Questions. Please Read!!!!!!
#1 Can I have alcohol delivered same day?
A. Yes, KRS specializes and has always specialized in the delivery of liquor, wine, beer (including plastic 54oz growlers of local beer), Cigars, mixers and non-alcoholic beverages, chocolate, and gift packages.
#2 What is KRS doing about COVID-19?
A.The store is closed at this time and we are not offering curbside service in order to keep the premises, our employees and ultimately you, our customers isolated, clean and safe. IT IS DELIVERY ONLY!
B. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) has approved our “knock & drop” delivery method for the time being. The KRS delivery driver will standby (at least 10 feet away or return to the vehicle) to be sure the delivery package is picked up by an adult. *This is not regular procedure.
C. The KRS delivery drivers are provided with Clorox wipes for the car, disposable gloves and a scarf/bandana. We have a very small staff and we continue to be vigilant about adhering to the CDC guidelines.
#3 Is there a minimum purchase requirement?
A. Yes, the minimum purchase amount is $35 excluding taxes, tip, delivery fee and cigs (yes we have cigs for $8 a pack in order to better serve our customers during this pandemic). Cigars do count towards the minimum purchase of $35. You will have to do the order over again if you have not met the minimum purchase requirement. We cancel the previous order and you will not be charged and will receive an email notification that the order was cancelled.
#4 Is there a delivery charge?
A. Yes, the delivery fee is automatically calculated based on the zip code of the delivery address. The delivery charge starts @ $7. If the zip code is not in our delivery range then it won't give you an option for local delivery. However, text or call us to discuss possible delivery for a higher order minimum and delivery fee.
#5 Do I need to show ID to the KRS delivery driver?
A. NORMALLY you must show photo ID. Then the driver will have you sign our delivery receipt which indicates ID was provided for each delivery.
#6 Do I have to be home to receive the delivery?
A. Yes, the TABC requires delivery in person to the purchaser and/or their designated recipient in order to verify legal age and get a signature. NORMALLY.

Add items to your cart then register your account so you can check out. If an item is out-of-stock it won’t show up but that doesn’t mean we don’t carry it.

#13 I would rather not place my order online. Can I place my order over the phone?
A. Yes, if you are comfortable giving your credit card information over the phone. Please know that only our managers will handle this transaction.
#14 Is there anything else I should know?
Yes! The way to tip the driver on the online store is weird and easy to forget. We are working on figuring out a better way. You have to basically pretend like it is a product that you have to put in your cart. You can find the quick tips ($5, $10...) and custom tip options in the DRIVER TIP category, or search "tip" in the product search bar. Also, don't forget that we have a minimum purchase requirment of $35. Thank you so much!! We are truly grateful and happy to serve you!
