Libby's Ice Cream filling the void and stomach in Fortville

For Libby Wyatt, it was about filling a need in the town she loves and lives in.


Earlier this year, Wyatt and her husband changed their business in Fortville, adding an ice cream shop and giving residents an opportunity to have the treat they had missed after another shop closed.


"I have had the retail business since July 2016 where we offered an eclectic selection of home goods, kitchen gadgets and toys. My husband and I shutdown StoreHouse in May and reopened June 10  with a renovated, reinvented and renewed shop with ice cream ," Wyatt told Giant FM.

Libby's Ice Cream is open at 11 South Main Street, Fortville. The business is closed Monda's but open Tuesday through Thursday noon until 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from noon until 9:30 and Sundays from 2-8.


Wyatt told Giant FM, she used to have a front window view of the previous ice cream shop and knew people were missing ice cream.


 "The town was missing ice cream, and they are thankful to have it again. And its really good ice cream," Wyatt said.


Wyatt said she is serving Sundae's Ice Cream, which is local, and, according to her, is "amazingly delicious."

"We offer sugar, cake, and waffle cones and bowls in a variety of scoop sizes. Milkshakes, malts, rootbeer floats and sundaes are also available. The most fun dish to have alone or share with friends is our flight, which is a sampling of four flavors of your choice," Wyatt said.


For those wondering, the retail portion of the store is still in business, according to Wyatt.


"We offer popular brands such as Natural Life, Melissa and Doug, Joseph and Joseph and Jody Realsor jewelry, as well as local favorites," Wyatt said.


With the temperatures cooling recently, Wyatt says customers shouldn't fret as ice cream is good year round.


"We are looking forward to the fall season and will be open year round. We offer gift cards and are big supporters of local charities and community events," Wyatt said.
