FIRESIDE CHAT

Texas package store owners are faced with what can seem like a never-ending list of legislative and regulatory threats to their businesses.  Every two years, the fate of their livelihoods hangs in the balances as interests from both inside and outside the state and the alcohol industry attempt to disrupt and dismantle a system that continues to serve the needs of Texas, its communities, the alcohol industry, and its customers. But one thing all Texas package stores need to know is they are not alone in this fight. We’ve brought together some of the sharpest independent liquor store owners from other states who have gone through or are going through similar issues to those you face in Texas. These fellow package store owners will share their experiences and advice– including what has worked and what hasn’t.
