A message from Paul and Carter…

We are very sad to announce that after 40 years, this is the Ice Cream Smuggler’s last season in our beloved Dennis Village location.

Despite our best efforts, we were unable to prevail. We have reached a financial settlement with our landlord that will enable us to complete the 2018 summer season. This is certainly not the outcome we hoped for or feel we deserved. It has been a long, heartbreaking fight and we are eternally grateful for all the love and support we’ve received from friends, family and the community.

We have invested 14 years of our lives as owners of the Ice Cream Smuggler. We have been honored to carry on the tradition of this Dennis landmark. More than anything, the Smuggler has always been about people – the families who return every year, often introducing a new generation to us. The dozens of staffers who worked so hard and graciously behind our counter. And our own children who have literally spent their entire lives around the shop. These relationships have led to lifelong friendships and many have become truly family in our hearts. We are beyond grateful for 14 years of memories and joy at the Smuggler.

We will officially close Columbus Day weekend. We are evaluating our next steps and will keep you posted. In the meantime we hope to see as many of you as possible this summer. We are still open, still scooping and still smiling. We are still the Ice Cream Smuggler.

Thank you,
Carter and Paul Catalano
