Penguin Pit Stop

Penguin Pit Stop shaved ice at events

Thank You!

It is with mixed emotions that we are announcing Penguin Pit Stop will be closing shortly after Christmas. We will miss seeing those of you that have regularly visited over the past several years, but running a small business is a major time commitment and we are looking forward to some much deserved family time.

Although we are closing the Penguin Pit Stop storefront, we are keeping our shaved ice and cotton candy machines and have plans to continue serving at events if there is sufficient demand. If you have school, church, community, or private events that you’d like us to serve shaved ice or cotton candy at in 2019, please talk to us soon.

Like many things, this decision was at least partially based on money – sales in busier months haven’t been where we’d like them to make up for slower months. However, we are truly a “mom & pop” store and felt the time was right to back away to give our girls more family time.

It’s our intent to answer as many questions as possible here. We’ll do our best to respond to email or Facebook messages as quickly as we can, but the best option will be to stop in.

Hours: we will be open posted holiday hours through Christmas Eve, closed Christmas Day, and will have some scheduled hours December 26th, 27th, and 28th. Store hours will be updated on Facebook.

Santa will be visiting us on December 22nd, from 2:00 until 4:00, as previously scheduled.

Discounts: some items are already marked down and additional things may be discounted within the next week. Just don’t expect to see things 90% off the last few days.

Shaved ice syrups: we are keeping our personal favorites and most popular shaved ice flavors, but all others are available for sale effective immediately. This is your chance to get either the concentrates or pre-mixed flavors (pick up favorites and a Snoopy Snow Cone Maker as a good Christmas gift).

Equipment & displays: many of our retail displays, food equipment, and other items are also available for sale. These are all “cash & carry” with no holds. We don’t have a comprehensive list of equipment, so you'll just need to stop in to see what is available.

Punch cards & coupons: we will offer shaved ice as long as possible. Filled punch cards may be redeemed as long as we are open and serving shaved ice. There should not be any other coupons without an expiration date, but if you happen to have something plan to use it as soon as possible.

We really hope you stop in and visit us at least one more time before we close the Penguin Pit Stop storefront. Our vendors have been awesome and we’d love to return as few items and as large of sales checks as possible.

Other questions? We will do our best to respond to questions submitted via email or Facebook. If you are interested in equipment or supplies, the best thing is to just stop in.
