Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop on Andrews Avenue is moving on! Their last day of trading is 23 November, 2018 and then the container will be heading south, to Christchurch, for its next stop.
Lower Hutt has been home to the 20ft Ben & Jerry’s container this winter, located on Andrews Avenue from 15 May, 2018, selling scoops of ice cream, shakes and sundaes. Its stop in Lower Hutt brightened the dark days of winter and many, many people became regulars. Ben & Jerry staff even started having orders ready for regulars when they approached the counter!
Extending their stay from three to six months, the Southend came alive with colour, music and ice cream adding a festive atmosphere on Andrews Avenue. Ben & Jerry’s Scoop Shop was the place to go after dinner and certainly on the weekends.
Their last day of trading will be Friday 23 November and the container will be picked up on 26 November to head to Christchurch.
We have been so pleased that this international ice cream company has made Lower Hutt one of its stops, as the company grows in New Zealand. The container set up on Andrews Avenue from 15 May 2018 originally only agreed to a three month stay, then chose to extend that to six months because the shop performed so well. It certainly held its own among the Australasian group of Ben & Jerry’s shops!
Thanks to the Ben & Jerry’s container team, regional manager and Australian management team for choosing Lower Hutt as a place to do business.
We wish Ben & Jerry’s well and hope you will come back soon!
