Coldstone Creamery, 4840 Forest Drive, Suite 148 (Trenholm Plaza): May 2008   1 comment

Posted at 6:00 pm in restaurants

When I first saw Coldstone closed last week, I wasn't going to make a post on it because it seemed clearly temporary, but I was puzzled when the down-time stretched into this week. What kind of high-tech equipment does an ice-cream store have that can't be fixed by a commercial refrigeration repairman in a few hours?

I hope it is temporary, but this is similar to the way the Bruster's closing started. Coldstone is pretty good too, though they make it very embarassing for both the customer and the staff to tip there.

Update 10 June 08:

Well, it's pretty much as I feared. The "equipment problem" signs were disingenuous as closing signs often are. Based on what I see inside the store now, it's gone.

This is the second upscale creamery that Forest Acres has lost recently. Luckily there's still old reliable Baskin Robbins up the street and Zesto's chocolate dipped soft cones (umm!) across from Richland Mall..

UPDATE 21 April 2010: Added full street address to post title.

  1. Just found your site, and having a blast going through your pictures, most of which are right around where I live (right off Satchel Ford Rd). My local sources tell me that the man and wife who owned this fanchise went through a nasty divorce, and the eatery became a victim of the battle.
