May 8, 2018


A favorite local ice cream shop, Island Creamery, is coming to Salisbury.

The third location is set to open, the Virginia based company first made the announcement on its Facebook page. The shop shared, “Coming Soon! (Hopefully early June) Island Creamery Salisbury at 306 Dogwood Drive. –Southern edge of SU campus.”

Island Creamery owner Kelly Conklin, who co-owns the shop with his wife Robin said, “We happened to go by Dogwood Drive to see if TCBY was still there and the store was empty. I couldn’t believe it. So I called that landlord and we talked and we ended up renting it. We just think it’s a great location for what we do, and that’s how it came about.”

According to, “Numerous members of Conklin’s family are Salisbury [University] alumni, giving them a history in the community. With that experience, there was a greater draw with the possibility of being right next to the SU campus.”
