Since the first package store opened in 1966, we have been successful many times in the legislative arena.  

Listed below are some of our accomplishments:

We have Passed Legislation That Allowed

  • wholesale permits
  • off premise catering to serve alcohol
  • the ability to stay open on election day
  • package stores to sell soft drinks, ice, juice, mixers and other items
  • the repeal of the "tied House" laws, and allowed our industry the ability to advertise and to have a glass store front

We have Defeated Legislation That 
  • would allow grocery stores to have more that one permit
  • would allow wine sales in grocery stores
  • would allow "Privatization" of wines in Mississippi
  • would increase the tax on wine and spirits.
