Wilton Ice Cream Shop Gets Scoopful of Tributes

WILTON, Conn. – Even the state legislature got in its licks as the Wilton ice cream institution Scoops celebrated 30 years Wednesday.

Co-owner Meghan Wall accepted the tribute from State Rep. Gail Lavielle, R-Wilton, saying she was honored that people came to celebrate the anniversary.

“On this momentous occasion, be it hereby known to all that the Connecticut General Assembly hereby offers its sincerest congrats to Scoops of Wilton in recognition of 30 years of making every day a good day for ice cream. Scoops of Wilton is the best little ice cream and candy shop in town,” Lavielle read from the commendation.

Wall and her husband, Kevin, bought the store with another couple, Chris and Aimee Ferrel, four years ago and haven’t changed it much. They've kept a lot of what the original owners had, down to the scoops used to pick out the candy and the handwritten notes of past employees on the bathroom wall.

The Walls attended Wilton schools, and many of Meghan's friends worked at Scoops during high school. “We just painted, kept the original floor and added new lighting,” Wall said. They wanted to keep the store as it had been when they were growing up.

For Wilton Chamber of Commerce President Ralph Slater, Scoops is a trip down memory lane. “It brings back memories of growing up in Westport and the old ice cream parlor there, Chanticleer’s.”

“Scoops is an institution,” Slater said, and one very popular with the town, especially the children.
