Miller’s Ice cream was located in Sinking Spring at 4700 Penn Avenue. Most people remember it being in operation in the 60s-70s, but I can’t find any definite info on when it opened and closed. One obit mentioned a man being a fountain clerk at a Miller’s in the 1940s. Today Hollywood Cleaners stands in it’s place, but boasts the same retro sign. Ever grab some ice cream here?
I have been told there was also a Miller’s Ice Cream location in Wyomissing along Penn Avenue. I am unsure whether they were operated by the same owners or if it was a completely different establishment. If you have any information about Miller’s feel free to drop a comment or email us at [email protected]
Yes. When my husband & I were dating, we asked for one cone because we didn’t have enough for two but the owner gave us two! Also, had fun at the miniature golf course!
I remember when I was little before it closed.
But in the 80’s my dad and mom used to take my brothers and I to get ice cream.
I used to be bratty and dad would spank me for what ever u did and then I would cry; he would take me to Miller’s to get ice cream cone.
The owners knew my mom and dad because of my grand parents. They would give it to us for free.
I miss this place, I was sad when they closed up and the dry cleaners took the ice cream Shoppe.
I remember it closing up in the mid 90’s.
I told my kids about the ice cream shop that was there ;they look at me and asked why it closed up. I didn’t know why.
I grew up with ice cream at Miller’s and I’m 39 now. My parents are in their mid to late 50’s.
Things are changing nothing stays the same. But I always thought Miller’s ice cream Shoppe would of stayed.
I was born in 1978. I’m 39 now; the ice cream shop closed up in the 90’s before the dry cleaners bought the old ice cream shop. My memory is pretty good about the past.
I hope that helps/gl on finding more information.
Miller’s Ice Cream factory in the 900 block of Rose Street had a store as part of it. I walked up from 800 4th almost every Sunday in the summer in the early 1960s at passed to factory on the way to school at 3rd and Spring. There was a small alley next to the factory that connected to Spring St. The factory served several Miller’s Ice Cream locations.
