Summer Snow to Close
The popular Tuscaloosa business, Summer Snow, will close for the time being because of COVID-19. The shaved ice stand had just opened up this week for the season but decided to suspend operation for the safety of its employees and patrons.
Summer Snow had been instructing patrons to text the business their orders and pay digitally via CashApp so that the only transaction was passing the snow cones to the patrons. However the business put on its Facebook that it is safer to suspend operations in these uncertain times.
The Governor of Alabama Kay Ivey issued at shelter in place order effective today at 5:00 until the end of the month. With more businesses suspending operations , citizens will be less tempted to leave their homes. Summer Snow intends on re-opening once the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.
