Somerset ice cream shop won’t reopen this summer
Bruster’s Real Ice Cream along North Center Avenue in Somerset has closed.
A post on the ice cream shop’s Facebook page states: “Thank you for 18 great years. We will not be opening for the 2018 season.”
Erik Bittner, key operator and partner of Bittner PH, confirmed that the shop is closing. He said he had no comment at this time about what will happen to the building. He also owns a neighboring KFC and Long John Silver’s restaurant that opened in 2007.
The Facebook page says that Bruster’s gift cards are redeemable at any Bruster’s location. The nearest shop is in New Stanton.
