Ice cream addicts in Toa Payoh will soon know June 30 to be a sad, sad day, when popular parlor Creamier shutters its very first space in the neighborhood for good on June 30. In a Facebook post today, the brand announced its closure “with a heavy heart,” reminiscing about “that funny, tingly feeling of trepidation and excitement on the morning of 19 November 2011” when the shop’s welcome sign went on for the first time.
Offering gratitude to its landlady, market neighbors, past and present staff, and customers, Creamier didn’t cite a specific reason for its departure, but said that any leads for “a good space” would be “much appreciated.”
If you’re heading down for one last scoop of nostalgia before the last day of operations, expect to see a special flavor concocted by the ice cream makers as a final farewell to commemorate its “little heartland shop.”
But on the bright side, the joint will still be serving frozen treats at its Gillman Barracks and Tiong Bahru outlets.
