A package store, a packy, liquor store, wines and spirits - what's the best place to buy alcohol in the neighborhood?


This week's West Roxbury Patch's Readers' Choice Poll is - what is the best package store in West Roxbury?

Some people call them liquor stores, some people call them package stores, and some folks call them packies.

services its West Roxbury-Dedham border neighborhood well. While across the street is the , which sells Greek and other international wine and beer options, to compliment the market's food, and has also started to hold wine tastings.

So let us know your preferred package store through voting, and in the comments section.

Greek Food Market doesn't belong in this list because its main business is a food market, not selling alcohol

I agree with Steve. gary's is the best, hands down. They have an outstanding selection as well as great prices and top notch service. Gary's is one of the places I miss now that we have moved to NJ.
