I just saw a "SPACE AVAILABLE" sign right outside the closed Cold Stone Creamery on Weaver Street in Scarsdale. That store lasted exactly one year. The one in Rye on Purchase Street looks closed too.
I could never understand how that concept could stay in business. I have almost never had a good experience at a CSC. The ice cream takes forever to be made once you order it, so it was not worthing standing on any lines there.
Customers do not want to wait 15-20 minutes on line to get an ice cream cone while listening to the employees sing these inane little ditties the store requires them to sing!
