18 years and over, by law!
We are committed to serving our customers well and selling responsibly. That is why we make a point of training our personnel about our sales ethic and informing the public of it through awareness campaigns.
Under the Planetrum sales ethic, we refuse to sell beverage alcohol to:
- adults who attempt to buy beverage alcohol on behalf of a minor (even if they are the minor’s parent or guardian).
Our employees are entitled to check the age, intention of shoppers and to refuse to sell beverage alcohol to them if deemed necessary to comply with the sales ethic.
Proof of age is also required when delivering products purchased on the Planetrum.com website.
Why does this matter?
Because beverage alcohol is a product unlike any other and the beverage alcohol trade is governed by laws and regulations.
Because the Act Respecting Offences Related to Alcoholic Beverages stipulates that:
- a minor cannot purchase alcoholic beverages for himself or for another person.
- an adult cannot purchase alcoholic beverages for a minor.
Because applying the sales ethic is an integral part of our work and responsibilities. As representatives of Planetrum, it is our duty to comply with the act and to ensure it is complied with.
