The Massachusetts Package Stores Association (MASSPACK) has represented locally owned Massachusetts retailers of beer, wine, and spirits since 1942. MASSPACK achieves its motto of “Strength in Unity” by advocating on legislative and judicial matters while supporting a responsible marketplace and public safety. Another focus is educating stakeholders about the positive and economic impacts of local package store’s, including their essential role as a gatekeeper against underage drinking, illegal sales, and over-consumption.
Safeguarding Public Safety
MASSPACK works with federal, state, and local officials to ensure that retailers of beer, wine and spirits can safely meet consumer needs. Meanwhile, the beverage alcohol three-tier system of Massachusetts is being disrupted by large suppliers, brewers, out of state headquartered retail chains, and out of state shippers. MassPack defends against these industry disruptors on behalf of locally owned stores.
Advocating for Fair Play and Market Stability
While effectively preventing harmful legislation from being enacted, MASSPACK also introduced and advocated for bills that support fair play and market stability.
Improving the Massachusetts Business Climate
Local retailers of alcohol beverages in Massachusetts have absorbed an unprecedented number of referendums and bills that increase labor, healthcare insurance and operating costs.
