Letter to the Editor: Ben & Jerry’s Owner Thanks Community for the Memories

On behalf of our staff, I regret to inform you that Ben & Jerry’s has closed its doors.

We have loved our time with our scoop shoppe, and we are all hoping that you had as many enjoyable memories as we did on this incredible run! There are so many people we want to say thank you to and many incredible experiences that we will never forget.

Over the years, we have been privileged to contribute to our community by raising money for our charities, and we’ve been blessed with the support of our community in return. We brought strangers together, who became the best of friends over the years. We’d like to think we were responsible for those relationships because of the experience you had with us in our little ice cream store.

Although Ben & Jerry’s of Santa Barbara must shut its doors, I know its legacy will live on through the friendships and good times that it helped create.
I am extremely grateful to all of my staff, family and countless friends. You have truly made my experience unforgettable.
Robert Lee
Santa Barbara

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
