Ice cream shop cancels plans to open a “pop-up” shop in Downtown Erie

Local News

Less than one week after three downtown businesses announced that the Erie Downtown Development Corporation (EDDC) will not be renewing their lease, a North East ice cream shop has cancelled their plans of bringing the shop downtown. 

Accoring to EDDC CEO John Persinger, The Straw Hat Sundae Shop, has cancelled their plans to move into the space on North Park row due to the, “current climate”.

Persinger went on to say that the business was supposed to stand as a pop up shop for the summer months.
