A sure sign that summer is almost here is when seasonal businesses start opening their doors.

Ice cream and summer weather go hand in hand, so it makes sense that the soon to be newly remodeled Dairy Depot is officially open for business tomorrow, May 24 at 4 p.m.

The Dairy Depot is apparently undergoing some beautification efforts this year too.

A new mural in memory of owner John Elliott who passed away last summer will go up along with other improvements that will give Dairy Depot a facelift for 2019.

Dairy Depot stands at 4.8 on Google reviews, with many critics praising the ice cream, but the price, portion size, and staff are standouts as well.

Dairy Depot, 5413 North Second Street in Loves Park, is open daily 1 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. according to their Facebook page.
