Pittsburgh ice cream shop closing after decades of business

PITTSBURGH — A beloved Pittsburgh ice cream shop is getting ready to close its doors.

Dave and Andy’s Homemade Ice Cream took to social media to announce that it will be closing after 40 years of business.

The store is located on Atwood Street in Oakland.

The post said that Andy is retiring.

“We would like to thank our friends, families, past and present employees and most of all our loyal, loving customers. You are what made 40 years possible. We will cherish all the wonderful memories and friendships that have been made over the years,” Dave and Andy’s Homemade Ice Cream said.

Channel 11 dropped by the shop on Tuesday, and customers were lined up all the way down the street.

One couple waited nearly an hour, and said it was well worth it!

“We just had to come, have one more date, get their ice cream and soak in the memories,” said Jaye Sobieski.

Anyone who wishes to enjoy a final scoop and wish Andy a happy retirement is encouraged to visit the business on its last day, April 28.
