My dad used to take my sister, brother and I to get soda there. Glen Rock soda company was in a smaller shopping center on N.76th and Hampton Ave. I remember you had to go to the back of the center to get to the entrance. You would grab a cart and a wooden crate and walk around to pick out different flavors of soda. My favorites were Lime, Grape, and Orange but they also had flavors like Pineapple and Strawberry. They made great ice cream sodas. A crate of soda would last us for a couple of months.

I was really sad to see American Soda Water Company close. Angry They had a good product at a fair price. Wink
I think I still have a case of empties in my basement.
