    Someone returned for deposit a bunch of Berkley and Jensen soda cans. They are distributed by DJWC from Massachusets. The flavors were Root Beer, Orange, Lemon Lime, Grape and Cola. I found these in the bottle return area where I work in Salamanca, NY. We get a lot of out of town folks visiting the nearby park so I believe these are not local. Any info?

    Hmmmmm...Sorry, I don't think I've heard of either one of those! lol Are they like store-brand or generic cola or is it the real deal?

    I've seen lots of different Berkley and Jensen products (including water, but I don't remember sodas) at BJ's Wholesale Clubs. My guess would be that's where they came from.
    With thousands of sodas available for the choosing, why drink just one or two?

    Headquartered in Natick, Massachusetts BJ's Wholesale Club, Inc. NYSE: BJ is a membership-only warehouse club chain operating in the eastern United States from Maine to Florida, as well as in the state of Ohio.

    The company was started by Zayre, a discount department store chain, in 1984, on the Medford/Malden border. This was and still is the company's flagship store.

    When Zayre sold their own nameplate to Ames, a rival discount department store, TJX Companies was formed which owned BJ's, until it became an independent company.

    As of April 6, 2006, BJ's operates 164 BJ's and 2 ProFoods Restaurant supply clubs. Today, BJ's common stock is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "BJ". The letters B and J are commonly misinterpreted to stand for Berkley and Jensen which is also a brand name sold in their stores. The company was named after the founder's daughter, Betsy Jane. BJ's competitors include Sam's Club and Costco Wholesale clubs.

    Back in the 1980's Zayer was a big player in the discount general merchandise business(like K-Mart). I remember when the BJ's Warehouse first came on the scene in Chicago.

    My family and extended family were blown away. What a mind numbing experience. We were buying 48 rolls of TP like mad men and women. Who could beat 17 cents a roll? LMAO
