Recent Fire Ends Lavaca Business

The iScream Ice Cream Shop has closed its doors for good. The owners, Mark and Barbara Moreton Hare, first started the ice cream shop a couple of years ago in the corner of Highways 96 and 255 in Lavaca.

The building needed extensive renovations that took more than a year to complete. The Hare’s believe that they spent more than $6000 in cleaning up, and in remodeling, including installing a new bathroom, replacing old linoleum with black and white vinyl in a checkerboard pattern, new plumbing and fixtures. Finding regular hours was a problem as well, competing with other stores in the small section of stores.

Then last week there was an electrical fire in the ceiling. That was the proverbial straw that broke the camels back and the decision was made.

Barbara Moreton stated, “With much regret; we have decided to officially close iScream-ice cream Shop, we will truly miss the great people of Lavaca.
It saddens us to close! We have made so many great friends!”

In a phone call, she expressed their sadness about closing but wanted to assure that they were still going to be active locally, even though they do not live in the city. Barbara wants to stay active in the Lavaca Area Chamber of Commerce and has especially offered her services to make the Music in the Park projects successful.

iScream, you will be missed!
