A system for supplying to jobbers, in packaged form, quantities of bottled or canned beverages, or other products, similarly packaged, which enables the jobbers to readily convert the cartons, in which the packaged products are shipped, into display cases or trays, by removing portions of the shipping containers without disturbing the contents, so as to display and provide access to the multi-unit packages, and wherein the multi-unit packages are formed by tightly wrapping a cut and scored paperboard blank about the top, bottom and sides of an assembly of the bottles or cans which wrapper blank is provided with tear lines or areas near the bottom on opposite sides of the wrapper which enable the major portion of the wrapper to be torn off by an upward pull on top portions of the wrapper without the need for access to the sides thereof and which leaves the individual bottles or cans undisturbed but accessible for ready removal individually.
