What started out as a family owned deli back in 1897 making Italian style sandwiches, has grown into a library of sodas with more than 500 options.
Galko’s Soda Pop Stop, also known as Galco’s Old World Grocery has since shifted its focus from Italian deli to sodas and beers. When store owner John Nese took over from his father back in 1995, he began collecting and stocking drinks created by other small businesses. He aims specifically to carry those made by small mom and pop stores like his own.
Today, the store specializes in small batch sodas and family created recipes.
