Coming soon…yet another Redlands frozen yogurt shop

Thanks to our friend Amanda “Film Cannon” Keith for tipping Dine 909 off on the soon-to-be-open Swirly D’Lite frozen yogurt shop in the Stater Bros. shopping center at Alabama Street and Barton Road in Redlands.

I guess they are trying to catch those who think the TCBY a block away at San Mateo Street and Brookside Avenue is just too far to go.

Of course they’ll have plenty of frozen confection competition, what with at least five other frozen yogurt places (Golden Spoon, Ohana, Nubi, Hogi Yogi and the previously-mentioned TCBY), the old standbys (Baskin-Robbins, Cold Stone Creamery, Dairy Queen) and even frozen custard (Theron’s) already in Redlands.

Dine 909 wishes them the best of luck. If Amanda remembers to let us know when they open, we’ll pass the news along to you.

  • Well, to be fair, it’s a bit more than a block away — more like half a mile. 🙂

    Also, it looks like Dairy Queen is either closed down for renovation or for good, as it’s all covered in plywood at the moment.

    It’s .7 miles, according to Google Maps, if ya wanna get technical. 😉

    That’s interesting about DQ. They were closed for “remodeling” back in January, but were supposed to re-open on the 26th of that month. I just sent an email to my buddy Joy over at the Facts to have her check it out, so thanks for that tip.

    P.S. Thanks for following us on Twitter!

  • No worries! It’s just great getting some coverage on IE stuff, especially on a subject near and dear to me. 🙂

  • To follow up, it looks like they are renovating that Dairy Queen — there’s a lot of contractor activity and a new “DQ Restaurant” sign out front now.
