Although no longer pink, Goodies Ice Cream still a Galilee tradition

NARRAGANSETT – For six summers, those craving their favorite ice cream have taken refuge in the little pink cottage of Goodies Ice cream Shoppe on Sand Hill Cove Road in Narragansett. Yet, this summer ice cream lovers may be at a lost when they do not see that pink cottage. However, Goodies owner Cheryl Pelchat wants her customers to know Goodies is still here and only moved its location just one stop down at 236 Sandhill Cove Road from where the pink cottage used to be.

“It's a hop skitch and a jump away from the pink cottage,” Pelchat said.

Goodies changed locations this year after neighbor and former landlord George's of Galilee Restaurant expanded its parking lot, leaving little room for the pink cottage. When the landlord of 236 Sand Hill Cove started building the new building, which includes house for rent, Pelchat agreed to move Goodies to the new location.

“I didn't want Galilee to go without a Goodies,” Pelchat said.

Pelchat opened Goodies at its new spot on July 3. When the summer began, Pelchart said she was a little anxious because at first her customers did not know where Goodies had gone too.

“They've been finding it. They were a little confused at first because they couldn't find the pink building. They can look for the building with the great balloons,” Pelchat said. “I have loyal customers. They're all finding it now and say, 'we're glad you're back.'”
