Digumm's in Arlington Heights Is Apparently Shut Down Because of Overdue Rent
An ice cream shop that replaced the last location of an iconic chain of ice cream parlors has been shut down for at least the time being, and it apparently is due to the fact that its rent was not paid.
According to a thread within The Arlington List Facebook group page, Digumm's in Arlington Heights is currently closed, with a note out front indicating that this may be an overdue rent issue; the note mentions that in addition to rent apparently not being paid, a constable served the place notice last month and that the lease terminated around the end of the month. Phone calls to the shop have gone directly to voicemail, and there is no indication when (or if) the place might open again.
[December 17 update: A Twitter photo posted by @Advocate_Nick indicates that Digumm's has been forced to vacate the space because it owes more than $30,000 in rent, real estate taxes, and water charges.]
Digumm's officially took over the Brigham's space on Mass. Ave this summer after what appeared to be a long and gradual changeover; this was the last retail location of the ice cream chain, though their products can still be found in convenience stores and supermarkets.
The address for Digumm's is 1328 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA, 02476.
