Take 13 minutes and watch this wonderful video about Galco's Soda Pop Stop in Los Angeles. The company has more than 500 different glass bottle sodas (as well as more than 450 different kinds of beer and tons of different kinds of old candy) and have been owned and operated by the same family for more than 100 years.
The company has been known for its expansive selection of sodas since 1995 when John F. Nese, the owner of the store (seen in the video) started seeking out small businesses making great soda in protest of the big soda companies not giving him the same low prices as the bigger stores. Since then, the store has been featured on PBS and the Food Channel as well as a ton of newspapers and radio shows.
