Opelikans were in for a sweet treat during O Town’s grand opening of its new location at 700 2nd Ave. Saturday.
Lasting from noon – 8 p.m., the event featured entertainment and activities geared for children, release of two new ice cream flavors, as well as a book signing by Opelika resident and retired Command Sgt. Maj. Bennie Adkins on the release of his book “A Tiger Among Us.”
Owned by Chris and Angela George, Jeff Jerkins and Craig Davis, O Town’s relocation from downtown was announced last summer. The last few months have been spent readying the building for opening, and the shop retains its Opelika-centric aesthetic with rotating artwork from students within the Opelika City School system. They will also serve Italian ice products through their partnership with Scoops Real Italian Ice.
