This iconic independent ice cream and yogurt store,a Phoenix tradition since 1951, will close unless a sale happens. Anyone interested?

    It's more than just"The Economy" that's percipitating their Demise. Their neighborhood is in decline and deteriorating with a rise of lower income residents. There's been other Upscale Ice Cream Shops open in better sections of the valley. People don't go "downtown" to shop and go to the movies anymore. While there has been improvements in the Downtown area, their area is going the other direction. like many other old downtowns, merchants need to move or die.

    There is a Mary Coyle's in Akron which visit every time I am in town. The interior resemblance to Tom's Inc Cream Bowl in Zanesville OH got me wondering if both places are the remnants of an old chain. And now I hear of a Mary Coyle's in Phoenix. Anyone know the history?

    Kenny Joe, I was wondering the same thing.  The Mary Coyle's in Akron is a real nice place and there must be some kind of connection.

    If you read the story above it states:
    "The Kelly family bought the business from the Coyle family, who were in-laws, six years ago keeping up with the Mary Coyle tradition, which originated in Akron, Ohio. "

    Right, but the article doesn't say anything about a chain of Mary Coyles; it just mentions Akron and Phoenix.

    I'kk take a ride down there this weekend and try to find out and report back. My GUESS is they originated in Akron & then migrated out here. Probably sold the shop and name when they left.

    That's great news!  I hate hearing about places like this going out of business.
