For PLA can you offer in-store pickup ONLY?

Currently website has a cart which customers can check out with a credit card.  However, it does not have a shipping component.  Rather, website is set up for "in-store pickup" only.  Does Adword PLA require shipping component or does "in-store pickup only" suffice?  I cannot seem to find any specific guideline.

shipping is required.

for product-listing-ads, all items submitted must be kept physically
in stock by the merchants who sell them and must be shippable to
all users within the (registered-feed's) target country.

all shipping methods must be direct-to-consumer and all
items must be shipped in a timely manner to the consumer.


however, there are other campaign-types and ad-formats
that are also available, do not have such restrictions, and
might be used to advertise such in-store-pickup products --
