I have customers who return the empty jars but I find that the price of new tops and rings etc., to be almost the price of a new complete jar. Storing and washing them is an inconvenience cost. If you are marketing into a scenario with stringent size and labeling requirements you may not even be able to get away with using the new canning jars. Farm gate and casual sales is a lot less restrictive.
