Reed's Dairy opens store in Ammon

Sam Reed, son of Alan Reed, at the new Reed's Dairy store in Ammon.
Those of you on the east side needing a Reed's ice cream fix or cheese curds now have a lot less of a drive, as the Idaho Falls dairy opened a second store Wednesday at 2523 E. Sunnyside Road, formerly Sunnyside Sweets.

Sam Reed, who manages the store, said they learned the space was available in November when Sunnyside Sweets owners Tara and Jarom Christensen said they were closing their shop. Reed's had been selling ice cream to Sunnyside Sweets and had been thinking about second location for a while, Reed said.

There will be a number of grand opening specials, starting Saturday morning at 10 with ice cream served on French toast, in observance of National Eat Ice Cream for Breakfast Day.

The hours for the new store are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
