An idea born from COVID will come to fruition this weekend for a Clinton resident.
Sweet Mae's Ice Cream Shoppe opens this weekend owner Melissa Morris says it was an idea she had born from COVID while on quarantine in her family garage in 2020.
Morris says they will offer 16 different flavors of ice cream Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream based in Madison, Wisconsin. A master of sweet treats, Morris will have a sweet treat of the week and has other plans in the works for down the road.
It's been a long time coming for Morris to open her store with plenty of bumps and interruptions along the way. She appreciates the support of her family, particularly her husband Kyle who put in many hours to prepare the store.
Winter hours at Sweet Mae's Ice Cream Shoppe will be Wednesday and Thursday from 4 pm to 7 pm, 12 pm to 7 pm Friday and Saturday, and 2 pm to 7 pm on Sunday, and closed Monday and Tuesday.
