I could buy this soda right up til around 2000. Still have tons of empty bottles and wooden crates. As a kid and later as an adult you would go into the store pick up a wooden crate and pick (mix and match) your favorte flavors!

I purchased Towne Club tonight at the local Sav Mor Pharmacy in Gibraltar, MI. It is now in a plastic 24oz bottle, still with a variety of flavors. Each bottle has a various picture of Detroit, for eg. Creme Soda has a pic of the Belle Isle Aquarium. No more pry off glass bottles and wooden crates that as a child I vividly remember. Also going to the Towne Club store in Lincoln Park, MI to swap out crates and flavors. The bottle states "Bottled By: Towne Club Bev. Corp. Detorit Michigan 48203 Still cheap, $.79 plus $.10 MI deposit of course. Pick one up they are still delicious.....

There was a Towne Club store in Livonia too. It was on Middlebelt at 8 mile. Towne Club was always a staple at big family gatherings, but my folks never kept it in the house, which always meant I'd get filled up on the stuff every time we'd gather at my aunt's place. I was like Forrest Gump at The White House, only with Towne Club.

Great pop, in fact I just had one earlier with lunch. You can find it still, but it's pretty much limited to the Detroit area.

I remember as a child I would go to the local town club store and have a field day picking all the flavors. I watched a complete crate of Town club sell at a auction for $250. I wish I still had my crates and bottles.

It had to be the early seventies. Every Sat morning Dad would head up to the Towne Club store in Madison Heights, MI. Us kids knew what he was up to and begged to ride along so we could pick out our favorite flavors. I've since moved away from MI but glad to hear it's still available.

Well as far as childhood memories go, town club pop had to be one of my favorites. Pretty much I think the concept is still a good idea and I think a lot of people would drive like we use to just for the experience. With prices rising and companies everywhere slowly shrinking the size of our products, consumers tend to return to good ole ideas that are offer the people something real. Town club soda was something else. I was sad to come home to find they were gone from Wyoming, Mi. I would like to see them come back here.....along with the wooden crates and the bottles all stacked up so that I could once again go along and chose what flavor I wanted and how many of them for a wonderfully not inflated price. Thanks to those wonderful people who brought us Town club in the first place. Heres hoping someone thinks this is a good idea and thinks up a way of bringing this idea back.

The original Towne Club Pop plant was on Dequindre Rd in Warren, 2 blocks south of 9 Mile Rd. at Ghoulson (sic?), and their bottles were labeled as ether O-So or Towne Club. I think that O-So may have been a predsessor of Towne Club. They moved, probably about 1970 to a location on Ryan Rd, still in Warren, a block north of 10 Mile. Going to Fitzgerald Public Schools, field trips to the Towne Club Bottling Plant on Ryan were very common. The plant on Ryan closed in the late 1970's, I believe.

There was a store in Sterling Heights too on the corner of what was then Van Dyke and Clinton River I believe (today it is Van Dyke and Canal). I also remember the wooden crates, going with dad and sister to pick out our favorites.

Found two liters of Towne Club at Produce Palace near 12 and Dequindre and at the Walgreens at Hamlin and Rochester as of August 2009. Will it start showing up in more places, I wonder? The grape soda and the city punch are very good. If they made it with sugar I think it would be a good Jones Soda rival.

I loved Towne Club, on our way up to our cottage, just 1hrs away in Davison, MI we used to shop at the TOWNE CLUB store... and there was a dollar store at 10 vandyke a few years back that had a few flavors of Towne club in the wooden crates...i havent been there, so im not sure if they still have any.. But I did come across plastic bottles of 2 liter Towne Club at Walgreens 13 hoover last year. they got rid of them. jones soda wasnt a seller either. what they dont know!

My dad says, he used to go to a place near Vernor Hwy and Livernois...probably because he worked at the Ford Rouge Plant. But I was a kid in the early seventies so I'm wondering why this is under Food of the Eighties. There was a pop distributer on 5 and Middlebelt...wondering if he is there?!

Annie, Towne Club started in the 60's. This is in the 80's section because it was still sold in the 80's and there are people who remember it from the 80's.

I lived in Indianapolis, Ind and in the early 1970's there was a Towne Club store on Pendelton Pike. I remember driving past it in the car with my family as a young girl, the sun shining through the window lighting up all the wonderful colors of the soda.The only time I ever tried it was at a girlfriends slumber party. What a perfect world it was to me then.

There used to be a Towne Club in Romeo on Van Dyke near 31 mile road! Dad used to get a case of pop-a-go-go and then us kids got to pick out an assortment of other flavors for the second case! Does anyone know how many different flavors there were???

Only time i was allowed to drink soda as a child is when i snuck it during Summer Rec at Crissman Elementary,in Shelby Twp.. Great soda.. Loved the tall glass bottles and the awesome flavors.. Sucks how all the stuff from the 70's and 80's is now just a part of Detroit History.. Remember the Stroh's neon sign ,or Boblo... GREAT MEMORIES

I still have two wooden cases of empties in the garage - they came with the house 24 years ago. Any suggestions what to do with them?

Oh such wonderful memories. We used to go to the Towne Club store on Jefferson Avenue in Delray, back when stores and wonderful bakeries still existed in the late 60's and 70's. Later, we went to the Towne Club on Dix Road in Lincoln Park. Any time there was a family gathering we would load up the Sportabout station wagon and go and get crates and crates of the stuff. It was always so much fun because there were (what seemed) an endless amount of flavors. I wish I could find it now.

My Dad used to stock the Fire Dept's pop cooler in Portage, MI. When I was a kid in the early eighties. I recently found a place in Grand Rapids, I could get one for ten cents out of the machine. MI called Cousins Chicken that sells the glass bottles. It is located on Leonard and Fuller ave.

I found Towne Club in glass bottles at West Grange Pharmacy (Sav More) at West Range and Grange in Trenton, MI. 99 cents each, in a variety of flavors, in the cooler section.

I remember there being 31 flavors like the ice cream....they even had chocolate cream, cream soda and the best rockin rye I ever had. I loved that place...I was telling my daughter about it the other day, so decided to look it up...reading the comments brought a tear to the eye...it is just one of those wonderful childhood memories of the family to get in the car and go to the warehouse to pick our favorite sodas, the bottles and crates were awesome.everyone loved them, I wonder why they went out of business??..thanks all for sharing.

I just called the 313 number suggested above. The customer service rep stated that Interstate Distributer has bottled the soda for the last 10 years now. 8 flavors are currently produced and sold at numerous stores (ie. Nino Silvaggio's for one). They do not have a stand alone store but quite but the service rep states she is still surprised at the numbers of people that call to share the memories of the stand alone stores and the huge number of flavors. I'm going out to buy now.

I remember this soda as a kid growing up in Dearborn Heights, MI. Great stuff! It wasn't sold in AZ, much to my dismay. We moved to AZ in 1970. So glad to learn that it still exists.

Just bought some Towne Club soda in the past few weeks (June2012) at several stores. My favorite is the Michigan Cherry. They have cream soda, grape, peach, City Rush, and a few others. Various stores sell different flavors. The city rush flavor has the RenCen design logo. This listing for Towne Club soda should be in another decade, as I remember dad making trips to the bottling center, we'd get to pick our own flavors. Couple cases at a time each weekend. We'd share with friends, and well as their families would share with us kids. I'm so glad they are bottling it again, as their soda's are caffiene free, low in sugar, I do allow my kids now to have a treat of Towne Club.
