Decades old ice cream shop in Ladd closes its doors

Posted by wlpo on July 26, 2016

It’s the end of an era in Ladd.

After 105 years of business, Torri’s Ice Cream Parlor has closed. Tom Torri came to America from Italy and initially opened a fruit store in Ladd but soon started making ice cream. The business became known as Torri’s Ice Cream Parlor in 1935 and has been in the same building ever since.

Pieces of the parlor are being sold off including booths, ice cream dishes, toys and other antiques. You can check out some of the for sale items by clicking Torri’s Ice Cream Parlor
