About the Massachusetts Package Stores Association, Inc.The Massachusetts Package Stores Association (MassPack) is a non-profit trade organization representing the interests of local and independently-owned retail alcohol beverages stores across Massachusetts. MassPack is keenly aware of the business challenges that package stores face including: rising operational costs; changing competitive landscape; new insurance requirements; wage and labor issues; government regulations; legislative issues; preventing illegal sales and more. The Board of Directors of MassPack are primarily comprised of owner/operators of liquor stores who deal with these issues everyday. In addition to a professional staff, MassPack maintains a contractual relationship with a lobbyist firm and law office, while also making use of its Political Action Committee (PAC). The primary objective of MassPack is to sustain its membership through the preservation of the Commonwealth’s three-tier system, which rationally balances public safety with commercial and consumer demand for alcoholic beverages.
Masspack membership offers many important features and benefits to independent package stores and those who wish to do business with them. Included with membership are reduced registration rates to seminars and BAT server-training courses, substantial discounts on paper and office products and electronic ID checking equipment, discounted credit and debit card services, as well as Workers Compensation and Health Insurance options offering reduced premiums and/or dividends.
