Okay, you can uncross your fingers now. Mary Coyle, the landmark Phoenix ice cream parlor, is staying open.
Two weeks ago, I reported that an employee of the 60-year-old establishment told me Mary Coyle's did have a buyer and, barring any paperwork snags, they hoped to be back in business on June 1st.
Yesterday, The Arizona Republic confirmed that sweet piece of gossip by speaking with owner Tom Kelly who stated that Mary Coyle's has a buyer who is a long-time vendor, but until the sale is finalized, he would not release the name.
Kelly added that during this time Mary Coyle's would not close and will stay open for another month.
Sounds like sweet salvation.
