Ashley Beard and Sharon Owen have brought their dream project, the Southern Snow Shack, to life on Chubby Drive in Columbus, but they’re not stopping just yet! As time goes by, they plan to play hose to food trucks, swingsets, and more to help provide some variety to the place.
They have already come out with their first signature dessert, “The Snow Shack Cadillac,” Beard said. “It’s the works. It comes with soft serve ice cream at the bottom, shaved ice, flavoring, soft serve ice cream on top, cream and the topping of your choice. It’s just a little bit of everything.”
Southern Snow Shack offers 32 flavors and is open Monday through Friday from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m.-8:30 p.m.
Mike’s Package Store has closed its old location, and they are now almost ready to open its new one at 1925 Hwy. 45 N., the former Aaron’s building. They only lost two bottles to breakage out of over 3,000, so all is going as planned. They plan to reopen next week, and their hours will be: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.-10 p.m.
Downtown, The Steel Forest Furniture Company has had to close down temporarily because recent wind and rains tore open a hole in the ceiling, ruining several furniture items. while the storefront is closed for now, this won’t slow them down any; they can still take orders 662-570-4745.
Finally, Popeyes on 45 is temporarily shut down for remodeling, inside and out. No official word yet on when they plan to reopen.
