We’ve been getting our groceries delivered lately, and, for the most part, it’s gone pretty well. However, we have had a consistent problem getting ice cream. It’s been unavailable.
As the weather is warming up, this is becoming an increasingly serious and urgent problem, according to the other people who live in this house.
Thankfully, though, we don’t have to rely on the grocery stores for ice cream. We have a plethora of excellent local ice cream shops in Charlotte. We’ve done some research to find out which of these is open for pickup, or even delivery. We’re especially interested in the shops where we can bring home a pint or quart of delicious ice cream, rather than just a cone at a time.
Know of others that should be on this list? Just let us know, and we’ll add them, as time permits. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, these are rapidly changing times, so make sure to call the ice cream shop or check their social media, to confirm details.
