Last month, we reported that the Ben & Jerry's at the corner of Haight and Ashbury was temporarily closed for a light renovation. While it reopened later that week, the renovations have continued. The storefront is now a highly visible bright purple, with teal highlights, and the floor of the elevated entryway at the corner has been replaced with some faux-wood paneling.
The other big change is to the windows on the west side of the building, which used to be covered by freezer cases. Now the windows are open to the streets, with seating in place, giving the shop a much more open feel.
While they're still putting the final touches on the renovation, there's now a plaque on the Haight Street side, declaring the year the store opened: 1992.
The changes will come just in time for the shop's biggest day of the year: next Tuesday, April 12th is Ben & Jerry's annual Free Cone Day, from 12-8pm. Set an alarm. We'll see you there!
