Happy Valley Freez to Close

Downtown ice cream, soup, and sandwich shop Happy Valley Freez is shutting its doors for good at the end of business today, the store announced on Twitter. The restaurant opened in 2009 as a branch of the 23-year-old Lewisburg Freez and served over 50 ice cream flavors and 60-70 milkshake flavors.

Red flags went up earlier this weekend when the store, located on 234 E College Ave right across from Rotelli’s, posted its equipment for sale on Craigslist.

The restaurant then made this announcement earlier today:

If you still want to enjoy a delicious sandwich, soup, and milkshake, you have only a few hours to get downtown. We will post more information when we have it but one thing is for sure — we’re going to miss the snarky anti-NCAA, pro-State Patty’s Day Tweets.
