    I would love to have this store in my neighborhood. The only problem is that this guy is down on returnable bottles. He’s SO wrong on that. Twenty five years ago Michigan (where I live) passed a law that all carbonated beverages sold in bottles or cans must have a ten cent returnable fee. Within a week of passage, the parks and picnic areas were utterly clean of bottles, cans and, oddly enough, other trash! You can literally tell the border from Michigan and Ohio by the trash on the roadside.

      Can nobody be bothered to reach across the border to pick up a bottle? Is there one of those invisible fences there?

    • Stick,

      His issue seems to be with the CRV centers more than with the CRV itself. I lived in California for a little while and I have to agree with him. The state-run CRV centers undercut retailers and customers.

  2. Sue Dunham,

    I didn’t think I would watch 12 minutes of sodapop. It was fascinating.

      I didn’t think I’d watch the whole thing either, but I did, too.

  3. Cornjob,

    Pardon the pun, but I adore his effervescence. :) It’s nice that there’s someone out there doing something he loves. :)

    I was bummed this store is all the way over in LA but the store website says they do ship.

      Oh good. Because I suddenly need several cases of obscure soda.

  5. Mike K,

    What a great guy! Kind of reminds me of Mr. Hooper from Sesame Street.

    The other good thing about CRV is that it was a great way for young kids to make money. My friends and I would walk along the roads, looking for bottles to return. This was in the 70s – we could return them directly to stores for a nickle each. By the time we got to the store, we usually had enough for a few candy bars.
    Wow. Reading that back, it sounds very “Stand by Me!”
