Her favorite feature is the ice cream stand of toppings that includes almonds, peanuts, peanut butter cups, licorice, Gummy Bears, pie crust pieces, cheesecake chunks, mini-macaroons, white cake pieces, streusel topping, mixed berries, spiced apples, Butterfingers, M&M's, and Reese's Pieces.
The ice cream dipping cabinet showcases these toppers with low windows and a step-up bar, allowing children to watch servers prepare their favorite treat.
"It is important the servers face the customers. It is like they are putting on a show. This is a big transformation. We are updating the look and the feel," said owner Gerry Dake last week at the Open House celebration, where guests enjoyed free samples, raffles and ice cold prizes.
The store has a colorful interior and exterior design, new logo and atmosphere without losing its original charm.
"It has been a difficult process but the customers seem to like it," said Dake. "It appeals to the kids."
The store donated to the American Red Cross 10 percent of sales for one week starting Aug. 9, in addition to making a $500 donation.
