The Massachusetts Package Stores Association is an organization representing the hundreds of locally owned retail liquor stores across the state. The Board of Directors are also owners/operators of liquor stores. Like you, we are subjected to the daily challenges of operating a business - insurance availability, wage, labor and tax issues, etc. We also face the challenges of preventing illegal sales and maintaining a positive public image. Your membership demonstrates your belief that the beverage alcohol industry, through its retailers, provides many positive benefits to our society.
