Ben and Jerry's

Does anyone know what's up w/the Ben & Jerry's on Atlantic? There was some movement in there about a week or 2 ago w/a sign posted saying the store would be open on "Thursday" but now it looks empty in there.

    I think it's being replaced by an Uncle Louie G's store?

      Why do you think that?

        I saw a sign in the window saying so a couple of weeks ago. Haven't walked by this week, though.

      I had a casual conversation a few months ago with the wife of the husband and wife team that own it. She gave me the impression that they were not enjoying the experience.

      Also, there was a mid-afternoon robbery there that ended in the husband being tied up at gunpoint and left in the back room (as reported in the local papers). I'm pretty sure it closed the day after that.

        That's very disturbing and awful. I hadn't heard about that.
