Ice cream shop changes name
After 13 years, residents Dilip and Binta Shah scooped their last Maggie Moo’s ice cream on Sept. 28. Their shop at 753 Crossroads Plaza in Fort Mill re-opened last week as Scoop n’ Swirl.
“We will be offering our homemade ice cream, shakes, smoothies, cakes and many more items for our customers,” said Dilip Shah.
“We will have more opportunities to keep prices down and support our community by not being in the franchised business. We have plenty of plans with the new store.”
The Shahs re-decorated the shop, which will offer similar hours of operation and menu items.
“We will honor the coupons, specials and any promotions that we have given out as the franchised store,” Binta Shah said. “I will be customizing the birthday and party cakes and we hope to have some new fun items to offer our customers.”
