Jersey does love its ice cream, that's an undeniable fact.

Whether it's soft serve from Kohrs on the boardwalk, a nice big scoop from Rich's, or Yellow Brick Road, ice cream and Jersey just go together.

It's not exactly soft serve, and it's not really water ice either, it's just my favorite summertime treat.

However, there's one ice cream shop in Jersey that's been around for almost 100 years, and last year it announced it was going to close permanently.

It was a devastating blow to ice cream lovers all over the state.

But, just as we are getting ready to kick off summer, it appears as though this beloved ice cream shop will remain open, at least for this year.

Today, it serves an array of flavors and treats, and soon you'll be able to get food too.

The shop was going to close this year because it was no longer able to keep the business running, but thankfully a local business has stepped in to help.
