Mooney's to close temporarily after 20 years in Saginaw location

Posted: Updated:

Say goodbye to one of Saginaw's favorite family least for a little while. 

Mooney's Ice Cream on State Street in Saginaw Township is closing its doors temporarily after nearly 20 years at the location. We're told the business is closing because of the owner's failing health, but the store manager said she's hopes the closure will only be temporary. 

"Closing is temporary! We are working to get it reopened as soon as possible, but it will take some time," Nina Steiner said. 

Mooney's was a Saginaw-based dairy established more than 90 years ago. 

"We've had so many generations coming through here in the county, just hate to see it go," said Mario Benavides, a customer. 

Steiner said she knows who made the business a success. 

"All of the young kids that have come through the door that have grown over the years, and toddlers, and they become taller than me, and then they come in with car keys in their hands, and they come in with engagement rings on their fingers," she said. 

Steiner said the store will open at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 19 as they try to sell their last bit of ice cream.
