Ah, yeah, Boise. We gonna get free ice cream again.
The city’s second Cold Stone Creamery is set to open as soon as Aug. 1 at 7546 W. State St. — in the North Pointe development across from Wal-Mart. As hungry Idahoans discovered when Cold Stone opened at 1028 S. Vista Ave. in November, that means free ice cream for a few hours during the grand opening.
Cold Stone will join restaurants such as Jersey Mike’s Subs, Chipotle, Smashburger and Native Grill & Wings that already have opened at North Pointe.
Owner Conrad Lee hasn’t firmed up the celebration date yet — nor the Aug. 1 opening. (Hey, it might be Cold Stone, but it ain’t set in stone.) “Both dates are tentative,” he says. “If we open sooner, that would be great.”
Never miss a local story.
Whatever the case, Boise will have more slab-mixed ice cream soon — from four Cold Stones in the Treasure Valley, counting the Meridian and Nampa locations.
