PopHeads Dessert Shop is Closing its Doors on Main Gate Square

"Stock your freezers one last time!"

It’s been a sweet run for PopHeads at 845 E. University Blvd. The team behind the concept just announced that it’s permanently closing — the final day is Friday, May 24.

Brother-in-laws Scott Harrison and Jim Roberts opened the popsicle stand on Main Gate Square as Peace, Love & Pops nearly two years ago in June 2022. They changed the name to PopHeads a little less than a year later.

The popsicle crew isn’t closing the shop quietly, though.

“It’s been an awesome run but all good things come to an end,” PopHeads shared. “To say a final thank you to all of our fans, we are going out with a bang, offering the following specials (while supplies last)… Stock your freezers one last time!”‘

The specials include:

  • All beverages are BOGO (buy-one-get-one-free)
  • All lollipops are $1 each
  • Happy Hour is 4 – 7 p.m. on Monday – Friday and all Pops are $3 each

So, head into the shop on University Boulevard, wish the team well, thank them for providing sweets, and stock up on popsicles and other treats for the summer. The final day is Friday, May 24.

PopHeads is located at 845 E. University Blvd. For more information, follow PopHeads on Instagram
