Anyone Remember the Pop Shoppe?

I sure do. Growing up in the small town of Molalla Oregon, I was lucky to be blessed with one of these, complete with drive thru! Being able to pick any combination of flavors you wanted was what made the Pop Shoppe special for me growing up.

While chatting about local TV Station KPTV on PDXradio.com, the topic of conversation drifted toward the Pop Shoppe and commercial spots. One of the folks just happened to have one and let me post it here. You know you just wanna click it and bring back a memory or two so go for it!

Edit: Yes, I did mean KPTV instead of KPDX --thanks anonymous.

Doug - are you aware that the Pop Shoppe is now back in business here in Canada? The trademarks have been re-registered and it's already popping up across Ontario (and soon to be crossing over into the U.S. soon). Big feature story in the print edition of Soda Pop Dreams Magazine (Issue #35) at: http://www.sodapopdreams.org!

No I didn't!

Thanks for the link. That's cool to hear. Perhaps one day soon, I can order a case and share it with the kids!

The discussion referenced on PDXRadio is about KPTV, not KPDX.

If you would like to see what will be to come of the Pop Shoppe, check out:
