Looking down Main Street today some may notice something old that is actually something new. The old Camino Real sign has reappeared at their former location because Tastee Freez removed their sign and closed their doors. A sign on the door said simply that the lease ended and they would be closing August 13th.
While it had been announced on the door for some time, the removal of the sign was the first indication of the closure for many residents and took some by surprise. One resident commented that it was reminiscent of the Baltimore Colts leaving town. “One day they were there, the next day they were gone.”
Tastee Freez had a long history in Berryville. For years it was located across from Enders Fire Company in the spot now occupied by Knossos Restaurant. After a brief absence after the closure in that location the establishment reappeared on Main Street in the building that housed Camino Real before they moved to Crow Street.
The former owners could not be reached for comment but the sign on the doors closes with “It has truly been a pleasure to serve you.”
