Miller’s Ice Cream

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.

Born and raised in Berks, I am fascinated by the style, design & culture of the mid-late 20th century. I started this website to research and build a collection of the places, things and stories I have heard about my entire life. Read more here.

  1. 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!

  2. 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.
