Cool off with us at this store-wide tasting event featuring frozen treats and toppings of all kinds! Look for our roaming ice cream cooler, from which we'll be sampling delectable treats including:

 

King of Pops Charlotte will be slinging pops outside our store; inside we'll be sampling Buchi sorbet at our gelato bar, and Larry's Beans will be on hand for those who want to pair a little coffee with their (ice) cream.

 

To top off things--literally--we'll have a toppings bar of sweet and savory options provided by several of our department teams. Vote for your favorite with your spare change; we'll donate all proceeds to the Non-GMO Project.

 

And for the little scoops, we'll hold a sundae sidewalk-chalk contest from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. outside our store. We'll have prizes for our artists, as well as a ice cream-themed prize pack for the best chalk creation!
