Abbott's Frozen Custard Is Opening in Arlington Heights

A small chain of frozen custard shops that recently closed one of its Boston-area locations will be opening a new shop in the northwest suburbs--and it will be located about midway between two of its other three stores in the region.

A post within The Arlington List Facebook group page mentions (via a post from the chain) that Abbott's Frozen Custard is planning to open in Arlington Heights, with the post from the business saying "Hey there Arlington Heights...we are coming to you with our 2nd Arlington location! Stay tuned right here for all of the opening details." Once it opens, the new shop will join its other Arlington outlet (which is in Arlington Center) along with a store a few miles up the road in Lexington Center, and another in Needham.

A Brighton outlet of Abbott's--which is based in Rochester, NY--shut down last month.

[September 28 update: A Facebook post from the place mentions that the Arlington Heights location of Abbot's is now open at 71 Park Avenue.]
