Bruster’s Real Ice Cream near the Dunn Loring-Merrifield Metro station plans to close permanently tomorrow (Friday).
Renita Shelton, the eatery’s manager, posted the announcement earlier today on the Facebook page for the location (2672D Avenir Place).
Bruster’s is known for its variety of cold treats including ice cream, shakes, floats, sodas and cakes.
Shelton called the upcoming closure a “bittersweet moment,” sharing that “the decision to close the shop at this given point in time was necessary for your safety as well as ours.”
Shelton thanked customers who “traveled far and wide” to come to the shop and other D.C. area locations for the ice cream chain.
Tysons Reporter reached out to the store earlier today and will update this story if more information becomes available.
