Philadelphia ice cream staple Scoop DeVille is opening a new shop on South Street in the city’s Headhouse District at 5 p.m. on Friday.
The ice cream shop is celebrating its grand opening with $1 special blends and free gifts with purchases, a post on the business' Instagram states. Additionally, visitors will have chances to win prizes by spinning a game wheel.
Prizes include cash, T-shirts, Flyers tickets, ice cream, cakes, and gift cards to nearby businesses Federal Donuts and Tattooed Mom.
An Instagram promotion this week encourages people to follow, like, and comment on a Scoop DeVille post for a chance to win a logo tattoo by Philly artist Michael DiGiacomo of Tat215ive, which will grant them the ability to receive free ice cream once a week for life.
The new shop is located at 538 South St., and the grand-opening party will last until 8 p.m.
Other Scoop DeVille locations include Midtown Village, at 1109 Walnut St.; The Bourse, at 111 S. Independence Mall E.; and delivery-only UCity Express, at 3300 Fairmount Ave.
The ice cream shop is well-known throughout the city for its customizable creations. Their drilling system uses all fresh ingredients and allows them to make soft serve without a traditional machine.
Scoop DeVille opened its first store in Philadelphia in 1989.
