Northern Soda Co., which opened in July, is set up like the old Pop Shoppe stores, inviting customers to assemble their own packs of pop from pallets in the 38,000-square-foot warehouse. Instead of getting a 12-pack of cream soda, for example, a customer could choose 12 different flavors, among them Ginger Pop, Mango Citrus and Sunday Purple.
