The already financially hard-hit city of Vallejo is taking a new hit.

7Up is closing its bottling plant there, and 90 jobs will be gone as of mid-October.

The plant has been in operation for nearly 60 years. It's owned by a company that makes Dr. Pepper, Snapple and 7Up.

The work will be picked up by 7Up facilities in San Leandro, Petaluma and Sacramento.

A company spokesperson says the consolidation is aimed at serving customers more effectively.
