Popular Frozen Yogurt Shop Closing in Kingston
They are closing after being in business for 31 years.
The common theme over the last six months has been something that has to change, and change quick ass we are losing way to many businesses in the Hudson Valley. We've had big chain stores close, restaurant's close and now a very popular frozen yogurt shop has announced that they are planning to close up shop sometime this month.
According to the Daily Freeman, The TCBY frozen yogurt shop on Morton Boulevard in Kingston is closing, and the owners have said that the COVID-19 pandemic is the main reason for the closing.
TCBY owners John and Trish Bassett who opened up TCBY (The Country's Best Yogurt) in 1989, recently posted a sign in front of the yogurt shop that talks about the closure, it reads, "It's time to say goodbye and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts." The final goodbye is still unclear, but the sign did say that the store will close, "sometime in the middle of October."
The shop itself has gone through many changes over the years as they've added homemade soups, baked goods and a coffee bar, which then caused the name change officially, to the TCBY/Coffee Beanery/Soup & Such.
The Bassett family hasn't decided what their next chapter will be, but did do what they could to keep their message positive....
"Without your support the last 31 years, we would not have continued to exist. We are humbled, grateful and full of gratitude — the appreciation we have is off the charts! Trusting us and having our backs for 31 years, it feels incredible! When one door closes, another one will open — It's time for us to look for the new open door! It was an awesome ride!"
