There's a store on Prospect Street in Stamford that used to be called Sun J's Beer Wine and Liquor. But when Miguel Gomez bought it, he changed the name to The Prospect Packie, even though some of his customers have no idea what it means.

"People from New York, New Jersey down, they come here and they're like, 'What's a packie?' and so I explain to them, it's a package store, from New England and when you go up there everybody knows it," Gomez said. "Then I have people from the Boston, New Hampshire area that are visiting, coming down here — they totally love it."
