JOPLIN, MO.--- Sweet Caroline's Ice Cream just opened up inside the historic Gryphon Building. The building is more than 100-years-old and that's the era the designers were going with for the interior of the shop. They wanted a shop that looked like an old fashioned soda shop that has slowly disappeared over the years. 

"We wanted to bring something to Joplin that would be fun for families to go and bring back a little nostalgia. At least for us who are older. I remember going to the local soda fountain with my grandparents and we always had a really good time," said Ginger Sweet, Manager.

A grand opening will be held on the July 3rd.
