Brigham's in Arlington Heights Remains Open (for Now)
Last year, we reported that all of the Brigham's retail shops would be losing their brand name because they would no longer be able to sell Brigham's ice cream. The former Brigham's stores now have new names and ice cream suppliers, though we have recently learned that there is one remaining holdout.
According to several sources, the Brigham's shop in Arlington Heights remains open, with a Facebook page for the shop called "Brighams Ice-cream Last-One Left" coming to our attention recently as well. One source mentioned an article in the Boston Business Journal from several weeks back that explains what is going on; the article states that this location of Brigham's has been given more time to change its name by parent company Hood (which is based in Lynnfield) due to the costs that are involved in the changeover. No specific date has been given on the change, and it is not known what the shop will ultimately be called; as soon as we find out more, we will post an update here.
The address for Brigham's in Arlington Heights is 1328 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476. The website for the company can be found at http://www.brighams.com/
