About the Massachusetts Package Stores Association, Inc.The Massachusetts Package Stores Association (MPSA) is a non-profit trade organization representing the interests of the thousands of independently-owned retail liquor stores across Massachusetts. MPSA 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 MPSA are primarily comprised of owner/operators of liquor stores who deal with these issues everyday. In addition to a professional staff, MPSA 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 MPSA 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.
MPSA 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. Please contact the MPSA office to receive membership information and an application; or for information on current pending legislation, scheduled BAT server-training courses, or our annual Grand Tasting Trade Show.
