The Connecticut Package Stores Association (CPSA) serves to promote and protect the interests of liquor retailers. We have a long history of defending the rights of package store owners at the state legislature.

Like many other states, Connecticut’s liquor laws change frequently. It is pivotal to have representation with your best interests at heart to get in front of an issue before it extends beyond your control.

We at CPSA believe that the benefits of the hard work of our executive director, staff, and lobbyists can be multiplied many times over by active participation from our members. There is nothing more powerful than small business owners speaking directly with lawmakers to remind them that you count too. Our association will make sure that you are well-prepared to take on such a task through information on our website and informational sessions at events hosted by CPSA.

If you haven’t already, we encourage you to become a part of CPSA to protect your business. Visit our membership page for information regarding additional benefits of joining CPSA.

No one of us is as strong as all of us!

We look forward to serving you.


Stephen Downes
President, CPSA
