Scoops, a local Wilton ice cream and specialty candy shop opened over 25 years ago. It is located in the center of town, down below the Village Luncheonette at 92 Old Ridgefield Road. Their phone number is 203-834-1100.
SCOOPS was opened by two local women who found a huge need for a place to go to take the kids for ice cream after soccer and baseball games. Wilton had bookstores, florists, markets, banks, clothing and sports and hardware stores, but no "treat" stores. So, these two very good friends of mine named Care Heeks and Shelly Lawson opened one. What is it they say? Find a need, and fill it! That they did.
All of the kids' sports teams go straight to Scoops to celebrate their wins, or to drown their losses..... a fabulous congregating spot!
Neither Care nor Shelly are there, (nor is Susan Humphreys, who bought Scoops from Shelley), - the Walls run it now, but the same spirit and intent and excitement about the local families still " runs with the land, " so to speak....
Every holiday at Scoops has a new display of candies and treats - and even the flavors of Buck's ice cream vary a little to accommodate holidays, too. Local bakers bring in their specialties, and you may also order directly there. The best cakes in the area are available to order from there.
The owners have traditionally always given to The Survivors' Raffle at the Survivor's Dinner at the Relay for Life. That is the event that means the most to me every year in May. I am so appreciative of their donations every year.
