American and US myriad state laws dictate where the inhabitants can buy or booze alcohol. This countrywide miscellany of alcohol regulations gave a rise to a multitude of colloquialisms with local expressions ranging from the colourful to the banal. There are lots of retail stores that sell liquor in various parts of the country by various names.
For example, in South Carolina, inhabitants frequently say “red dot stores,” since most liquor stores in the Palmetto State reveals three red dots on their signs. Michigander defines the party store whilst Pennsylvanians frequent the “state store.”
The term Package store or Packy comes with a common explanation that citizens do not want to be observed carrying disgraceful liquor bottles in the street. States even mandated that liquor stores must sell all their products in the brown paper just like a package.
As Federal law could not ban the importation of alcohol in the state, the court had set a rule that if a store contains beer in its original package, it was legal and no one can take away it.
