      Galco's Soda Pop Shop on York in Highland Park.....they got them all and then some. I made up a basket of different root beer soda for someone's birthday.

        There is a small stall at Farmers Market that carries unusual/imported sodas.

          What about BevMo? http://www.bevmo.com/Shop/ProductList...

          I've also seen Jones soda at Gelson's.

              I also recommend Galco's and actually, I've seen the limited edition Jones sodas at Target, of all places!

                A few years ago my brother got some photos on the Jones' labels (you submit them on the website), so we ran all around LA trying to find who had the biggest selection. All I remember now is that the cafe in the Barnes and Noble at Westside Pavillion had a pretty good selection.

                  I've seen Jones at Cost Plus especially during the holiday season when they come out w/the interesting sodas like mashed potatoes and turkey, IIRC

                    I don't know why Chowhounders consistently fail to mention this place--but FAR BETTER THAN GALCO'S (I know, I know, sacrilege!!) is the place that SUPPLIES Galco's--namely, REAL SODA in Torrance.

                    Their very ADHD website (must be all the sugar...) is here: www.realsoda.com

                    To access their stock list, push the button on the right that says "Czech Out Our Selection"

                      I do believe I have purchased it at Smart & FInal.

                        I get Jones sodas at Bristol Farms, and I think I've seen them at Pavillons. I stopped by the Rosati's Chicago Pizza place in Corona the other day (well-made but off-tasting pizza), and they had Jones in their cooler.

                          My Bristol Farms closed early this evening for some reason, so I went to a nearby Albertson's and spotted Jones sodas there. I think it's safe to say they're everywhere.
