If you walk by the current Scoop DeVille in the next few days (starting April 27th), you'll be horrified to see it closed. But PANIC NOT! Because they're only moving a few blocks away! I have proof by way of a letter from the owner.
Here it is:
My name is Spencer Philips, and I am the guy opening the new Scoop DeVille in Center City!
The long-time Scoop DeVille owner, Matt Shore, will be closing the doors to the current Scoop DeVille at 18th and Chestnut in order to focus on his own brainchild: Sophie's Cafe in the suburbs of Wayne, PA.
I have partnered with Matt to open my own Scoop DeVille at 1315 Walnut St. We'll keep the Scoop DeVille name, mission, and delicious ice cream blends. Even the employees will be the same. I have been a lover of Scoop DeVille since I was an undergrad at UPenn in 2004, and I am so excited to share Scoop with even more people in Center City!
I would be honored if you would cover our new Scoop DeVille on your blog. We need help to spread the word that Scoop isn't closing for good, just moving a couple blocks!
Here's the plan: the current Scoop will close in ONE WEEK- so take advantage of the ice cream and sales now! We are renovating our new location in order to keep the same Scoop DeVille appeal that you've come to now and love. We will REOPEN AT 1315 WALNUT in Mid-May. We'll keep you posted on all the progress!
So, ice cream lovers of Philadelphia, do not panic--Scoop DeVille will be back soon! You can keep up with their goings-on via the website. And starting mid-May, visit them at their new location, 1315 Walnut Street in Center City Philadelphia!
