The Blue Moose Family Dairy announced that it's closing its doors for good at the end of the month. The announcement was made on the store's Facebook page Tuesday evening.
"We would like to send a BIG, heartfelt THANK YOU to all of you! You have been a real pleasure to serve and get to know," the owner wrote in the post. "Thank you for your kind words over the years about our product, service and staff (we ♥ our employees too...the best!) We hope to see you in the next few days. If not, our very, very best to you!"
The owner cited slow business during the off season as one of the reasons for closing down.
Almost immediately, fans of the ice cream store began sending goodbye messages.
"We are really sorry to hear that you are closing," Brian Rais wrote. "My wife and I really enjoy going to the Blue Moose in the summer evenings."
Another poster, Highland resident Trina Todoroff Zschering, said, "This is terrible news :( We love your custard! Where else will we be able to get yummy ice cream around here? You will be missed!"
