Going up: Get ready to scream for Stella’s ice cream

Downtown Boise will soon have a new ice cream shop as BoiseDev first… um… well… scooped. Stella’s, which started in Nampa, will open the new location soon.

The shop features hand scooped ice cream, as well as ice cream sandwiches with fresh-baked cookies, as well as a soda fountain.

Stella’s will open in the former American Clothing Gallery space in the Main + Marketplace project at 8th St. and Main St. Crews continued to install interior fixtures and finishes on the shop earlier today.

Hiring is underway and Stella’s promises to be open this summer. This will be Stella’s fourth location, including stores in Eagle & Meridian.

It will help fill a gap after the national chain Ben & Jerry’s closed its store a few blocks away earlier this year.
