On This Date in Minnesota History: March 1

March 1, 1980 – On this date, Bridgeman’s announces it will stop using glass bottles later this month, and move solely to selling milk in paper cartons and plastic jugs.

Duluth News-Tribune; “Bridgeman’s relegates its glass bottles to past era”; March 1, 1980; p. A1.

I worked at Bridgeman's my junior and senior years of high school, as well as weekends my freshman and sophomore years of college. I so remember these bottles, and have very happy memories of my years at Bridgeman's.
