Claremont Insider: Goings On

Goings On


The Daily Bulletin reports the Burt and Rocky's Ice Cream Company location in Upland will be closing. The Claremont location at Bonita and Yale across from Rhino Records will remain open.

The article said:

Owners Brent and Sherry Hunter have decided to shut their shop at 360 W. Foothill Blvd. due to a significant increase in rent.

"The building has sold twice since we've been here, and each time it sold for a lot more money," said Sherry. "So all of the taxes have gone up to where they doubled our rent, and if we renew our lease our rent would triple."

The Hunters purchased the company 11 years ago from founders Roberta and Roy Marley and upgraded to a larger space across from Upland High School about five years ago.

"It's sad that we don't have a store in Upland for the time being, but that doesn't mean we won't come back," said Sherry.


Claremont McKenna College's Marion Cook Miner Athenaeum will host former presidential advisor Karl Rove as a speaker on Monday, September 15th at 6:45pm. The CMC Forum blog had a post about the event, and so did CMC student Charles Johnson at the Claremont Conservative.

And in case you forgot, we received another Raveler spam about the band's appearance tonight at the Claremont Doubletree from 7-10pm.
