New ice cream shop coming to Downtown Albany

Cool Scoops is planned to open in the old Two Scoops location on Pine Avenue

A new ice cream shop is scooping up a place in Downtown Albany.

"Cool Scoops" will be located where the old Two Scoops shop was on Pine Avenue across from the Flint RiverQuarium.

"As a whole I just wanted to be a part of downtown," says Owner Eric Culbreath.

Culbreath says he has a concession trailer right now where he sells treats including ice cream, hot dogs and cotton candy from. He says expect a lot of the same goodies at Cool Scoops: Nathan's Hot Dogs, candy apples, cotton candy and 16 flavors of Bluebell ice cream.

He says he plans to open Cool Scoops in the beginning of May.
