CINCINNATI, OH (June 7, 2016)Graeter’s Ice Cream, a 146-year-old, family owned craft ice cream brand, is opening its 11th retail store in the Columbus area at the corner of Polaris Parkway and Sancus Boulevard on June 17, 2016. Touting a new interior look with updated environmental branding and a drive thru, this location will offer a complete menu of handcrafted ice cream, sundaes, milkshakes and old-fashioned ice cream sodas for which the beloved Ohio-based company is known.

A ribbon cutting celebrating the new scoop shop opening is planned for June 17 at 10 a.m., whereby community members and area dignitaries are invited to celebrate along with the Graeter family and Graeter’s team members. In addition, a portion of the first week’s sales will go to the Columbus Chapter of the American Diabetes Association, the national organization with the mission to prevent and cure diabetes and to improve the lives of all people affected by this disease.

“We’ve been working on a finding the perfect spot in the Polaris area for a long time now,” shares Chip Graeter, fourth-generation owner of Graeter’s Ice Cream. “We’re excited to provide unforgettable experiences to Polaris shoppers as well as the families who live in the surrounding neighborhoods. I think the community will really enjoy our beautiful new store design.”

In addition to the new Polaris location, this summer will see Graeter’s first stores in Cleveland and Pittsburgh as well as a second location in the Chicago area.

The address of the Polaris store is 8749 Sancus Blvd Columbus, OH 43222. Summer hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. Sunday.
