Farrell’s Ice Cream Is Not Opening At Christown Spectrum
In the 1970 and 1980’s Farrell’s Ice Cream was a valley’s favorite location for ice cream. There were locations throughout the entire country. The fictitious Ziggy’s Ice Cream Parlour shown in movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, which that was shot in Arizona in 1989, was a tribute to Farrell’s Ice Cream.
Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlor went out of business years ago, however last week news broke and was circulated on social media that Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlor was making a comeback and would be back in business with plans to open a shop in Arizona. The posts specifically detailed plans to open in Phoenix with a location at Christown Spectrum.
Recently, the Facebook page that made the supposed announcement of Farrell’s coming to Phoenix has been taken down and the “Farrell’s Arizona” Instagram page also went private.
In a statement, Christown Spectrum said “This is incorrect news regarding Farrell’s opening at the shopping center. We have not had any contact with them regarding Christown.”
Farrell’s does not seem to an existing online presence, leaving questions was this social buzz a scam or possibly leaked early plans in the development phases. As it stands, there is no certainty if you will have the opportunity to indulge in their famous fifty scoop sundae called “The Zoo.”
