Yeah, Nanaimo Bottling distributed to the central and north island as well, I found a passage in a book that confirms that. There weren't many bottling companies on the central and north island anyway, only one I can think of at the moment is Gold Star Bottling in Courtenay, which I think went out of business too early anyway. Actually I just remembered, I have another Seven Up bottle, one from Seven Up Kelowna. Now that's a weird one, entirely embossed and clear. I'm thinking it probably didn't actually contain Seven Up.And those Gray bottles are great! I especially like the Edmonton one, even if I don't collect prairie bottles. I wonder if anything was actually bottled in these. The 1978 bottle actually contained Seven Up but those two look like they don't have a specific product listed.And here's something weird I just found online, a much more recent bottle from Seven Up Vancouver, definitely post-Gray Beverages: http://kpolsson.com/forsale/7up03.htm I can't think of how to explain that one.
