March 26, 2019

Malacari’s is opening its second ice cream location at 1306 North River St., Plains Twp., after a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 3 p.m. Friday, said Frank Malacari, who owns Malacari’s with his father Vito, mother Cindy and brother Joe. Malacari’s acquired Sprinkles & Shakes Ice Cream and Grill at that location, made improvements, added more seating and will open a drive-through. “We’re really excited about it,” Frank Malacari said. “We’ve had so many good reviews on Facebook about our ice cream. A lot of people are happy we’re opening in Plains and we’re happy to do it.” Malacari’s also will open its other ice cream shop at 80 Wilkes-Barre Twp. Boulevard about 5 p.m. Friday, he said. The family also operates a popular store known for good deals on fruits, vegetables and sliced meats at 156 Mundy St. in Wilkes-Barre. This marks Malacari’s 10th ice cream season. — DENISE ALLABAUGH
