Sam’s Package – Spirits at a great cost
A Kingsport business owner has purchased and rehabilitated a local landmark, and the makeover is lifting "Spirits"! Sam's Package Store on East Stone Drive is one of the oldest liquor permits in the city, but after 50+ years in business, the building was faded and dated. Now the store has a completely remodeled interior to enhance the shopping experience and hundreds of new and exciting products. One thing that has remained unchanged is the commitment to excellent customer service. Now that a bottle of wine can be procured at any grocery or big box store, Sam's has endeavored to offer a carefully selected assortment of exclusive and highly rated wines in addition to the brands you already love. The staff is knowledgeable and passionate about matching shoppers with the perfect bottle, whether it's for an event, wedding, or quiet evening at home. Sam’s Package prices their wines at the legal minimum markup for Tennessee, so customers can save the most money whichever day is most convenient for them.
Located in the heart of Kingsport's retail and restaurant district, Sam's Package Store is a great place to pick up a gift. In addition to wine and liquor, they stock home bar accessories and supplies, glassware, and mixers. They also are expanding their beer selection to include more local and seasonal craft favorites. On Friday evenings, you can enjoy tastings that frequently feature industry experts and local distillers. Recent tastings have featured Hook and Ladder Distillery, Tennessee Legend Distillery, and Tennessee Mellowmoon Distillery. Check out their Facebook page and Instagram for more information.
