After a week filled with snow in the Sioux Empire, here's a little something that should help put a great big smile on your face now that the weekend has finally arrived. The 69th street and Louise Avenue B & G Milky Way has re-opened for the season!

The Sioux Empire B & G Milky Way's have a reputation for being some of the favorite ice cream shops in the area, and now that the weather is warming up into the 50's and 60's for the weekend, the 69th street locations grand re-opening for the season couldn't have come at a better time.


KDLT TV is reporting that the B & G at 69th and Louise has been open since Wednesday, March 1. Owner Diann Burwell's goal each year is to try and get that location open by the first Wednesday in March if at all possible.

Once word get out, the customers start rolling in according Burwell. “I don’t know who’s happier to be back, us or the customers but we’re all pretty excited. You know what the best part is, like that little girl that came running up, so excited. I mean that just makes your job when you see someone coming running and running so excited.”

Here's another sure sign that Spring is almost here, owners say the rest of the Sioux Empire B & G Milky Way locations hope to open up on Monday, March 13th.

Here's to hoping the temps continue to cooperate and stay in the 50's and 60's until then!
