Springfield dessert shop closes storefront, catering available

A summertime destination in Springfield is closing their storefront due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“Unfortunately we are closing the storefront this year,” Micah Level, owner of Snow Cove said. “We won’t be able to operate properly. With only one door to our space, we would only be able to allow one person in the store at a time due to COVID-19.”

He added, “This isn’t conducive for serving customs.”

Snow Cove, a shaved ice shop, was located on South Fountain Avenue inside the Clark County Heritage Center building.

Level opened the business in June 2017 after a friend told him that snow cones have low overhead and are a great way to get experience in business.

He remodeled the space and hoped that customers would take to the idea.

For three years, Snow Cove offered almost 40 standard flavors of shaved ice with house-made syrups and at least 11 premium flavors of Hershey’s ice cream.

“We are thankful for the last few years we’ve had in the storefront and appreciate all those who came out and supported us,” Level said.

Even though they won’t be coming back to the storefront in the future, Level said they are keeping the shaved ice equipment for catering or pop ups.

“We enjoyed serving up the shaved ice to the community,” Level said. “We look forward to catering corporate and community events.”
