It’s The End Of An Era For Coca-Cola Lovers

NEW YORK (October 11, 2012)--A small Coke bottler in Minnesota says it's stopping production of 6.5 ounce Coca-Cola bottles, which customers could return to get back a 20-cent deposit.

The company in Winona, Minn., had been making the bottles since 1932, but said it no longer makes business sense to continue doing so.

LeRoy Telstad, the bottler's vice president and general manager, said the last run of the bottles was Tuesday.

The Coca-Cola Co. based in Atlanta, notes that its 8-ounce glass bottles are still widely available across the country.

Those bottles aren't returnable, but are nearly identical to the smaller 6.5-ounce bottles.
