Armadillos Ice Cream Shoppe opens for the season

It is like a an unofficial holiday at Armadillos on March 1 because owners say it signifies that spring is here, summer is coming, and warm weather is on its way. Hours of operation at the ice cream shop will be Monday - Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. until school season ends and they will close at 10 p.m. during the summer. This is the second year Armadillos will be at their new location on the corner of 2nd and Main St. and owners say the move has really been helpful.

Austin Brummer, co-owner of Armadillos, says "Alot of our customers have just been very happy with it, we've got alot more seating in here right now, we've got alot more seating outside. More space where we can be much more efficient back behind the counter and serve our customers alot quicker so it's just been a really great thing."

This year, Armadillos has added new food and ice cream items to its menu. Owners say there's even some new flavors that the chemist is cooking up that will be introduced to the lineup later on.
