I used to be a regular Glendale customer. Then I went in on a Sunday afternoon with 6 empty deposit beer cans and a list of about $150 worth of wine and liquor to buy. The only clerk there told me that their bottle and can redemption center was closed on Sundays. I pointed out that, under Massachusetts law, they are required to redeem deposit bottles and cans any time the store is open. I asked him to take the cans at the counter applying the 30 cent refund to my order. He refused. I took my shopping list to another liquor store, which gladly accepted my empties and sold me the items on my list. I havent been back to Glendale since.
Ive been a customer of Glendale Package Store for well over 35yrs. I was forced to make my liquor purchases at D&L Liquors (just down the street) after Glendale decided to stop carrying the beers and wines that I always purchased there on a weekly basis. I truly believe that Tommy made a big mistake turning the responsibility of the store over to his son. The shelves are no longer stocked properly and the staff has an attitude problem. SADLY IM NOT EVER GOING BACK THERE!
Rather than take the short trip to NH, I decided to shop LOCALLY. This store had recently gotten a new owner and I was hoping it got a big face lift too. WOW was I surprised--absolutely the best liquor local store Ive ever been in..they were well stocked, incredibly helpful and NO ONE mentioned that they were closing in minutes as I browsed about. Many thanks to the owners for reviving this location--its a great shop, nice staff and easy to get to and park.
UPDATE, Well the old owner sold THANKFULLY to the people that own Macys Liq in West Roxbury who have taken the old S#@t hole and made it into a REAL liquor store! The staff is increadably friendly and the selection is as good or better then the stores around them, with the pricing HARD to Beat! My update is Jan 20,2015 I think 3 or 4 yrs after the first which was about the old owners who where total jerks!
Total make-over. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, unprecedented and unbeatable inventory and choice selection of everything, even rare items. VERY well organized and a variety of craft beer selections in the chiller (as appropriate ) About time!!! A WHOLE NEW STORE!!!!!!! Wish I was going there for something other than NA beer!
Great selection and friendly service in a clean and well organized shop.
Good collection of liquors. Convenient location and decent staff.
