The Universal Package Store is open and ready for business! Located on the Groton side of Downtown Mystic in the Main Block building (big brick building next to the drawbridge), Universal Package carries a fine selection of wine, beer, and spirits. They opened at 17 West Main Street Friday, October 21 with a wine tasting from 5-7pm, something they’ll do each Friday (sometimes with specialty beer, spirits or cordials).
Universal Package Store, whose Noank shop has been locally loved for over 70 years, focuses on unusual wines of all price ranges, specialty beers, and an extensive whiskey selection (stocked at the back of the store). They do their best to please all customers and encourage clientele feedback which keeps their business flowing.
In need of a last minute, special delivery? No worries…The folks at Universal Package Store will bring booze right to your door! An order of $25 or more qualifies for free delivery (call for delivery zone). Something to look out for in the future, UPS has plans underway for dockside deliveries by boat to local marinas. How’s that for service?!
For those concerned about finding a convenient parking spot to get in and out quickly, here’s a crucial tip. Park in the large lot behind the store (enter on Water Street at the Mystic Museum of Art). It’s metered, but the first 1/2 hour is free.
Cheers to the Universal Package team on the opening of your new location. We’re happy to see West Main Street gain such a classic business that is sure to please locals and visitors in the downtown Mystic vicinity for many years to come.
