2020 sure has started with a bang! Just weeks ago we signed a lease and officially announced the opening of our first Old Fashioned Ice Cream Parlor in the Twin Cities (click here to see the full announcement). We were overwhelmed by the positive feedback we were receiving from our fans and the media. Excitement, joy and anticipation were words that came to mind. Don't get me wrong, they still are! With the surprise of the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic, we have now added in words like unknown, nerves and anxiety. Our original plan was to open late May/early June. We are still aiming for that goal but it may be a bit more fluid as we adapt to the current times. What we do know is this, 'this too shall pass'. Eventually, restrictions will be lifted and everyone will be itching to get out and resume their normal lives. Our plan is to be ready for you as soon as we can! We are pushing forward with our build out and no plans have changed besides a possible adjustment to our timeline.
With that being said, we have had many people reach out about how they can support us during these tough times. We are a small family owned business facing new challenges like so many others. Here are a few ideas of how you can support Bridgeman's during this time of transition:
1) Buy our ice cream at your local market! Click here to see a complete list of locations. Many are also small businesses that could use your support!
2) Like, Comment and Share ALL of our Facebook posts! Increasing traffic to our social media will help ensure as many people as possible are receiving our notifications and updates.
3) Support our neighbors! We will be located at 2110 Eagle Creek Lane (Eagle Valley Marketplace). Help ensure our little shopping center stays afloat during these tough times. This will help us maximize foot traffic near our parlor when we do open.
4) We have decided to sell discounted gift cards for those interested! These are e-gift cards that you will be emailed. They are good for the Bridgeman's Ice Cream Parlor in Woodbury only. We want you to be ready and eager to stop on in once our doors open! Click this link to purchase. DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE COUPON CODE BELOW AT PURCHASE.
We are looking forward to being a part of the local community and serving YOU!
