“06880” has learned that Ben & Jerry’s — the only place in town to buy an Imagine Whirled Peace cone — is closing.
“The landlord wanted a 30% hike in rent,” a reader writes. “My 17-year-old daughter lost her part-time job.”
This is disturbing news on a couple of levels. Ben & Jerry’s has long been at the forefront of social activism, supporting important causes great and small.
The company has always looked out for its employees, also in ways great and small.
Everyone who worked there always looked like they were having fun.
Must be the Cherry Garcia.
