Subject: Re: Packy revisited
Although I was subscribed to this list by someone else and have been
trying unsuccessfully for some time to be unsubscribed (if the listowner
is reading, would you please unsubscribe me?), I do have a response
regarding the term "packy" for a liquor store.
Is it possible that it refers to the ownership of many liquor stores by
Pakistanis? I wouldn't be surprised if it is a British slang term.
