An ice cream store on Vernon Boulevard is set to close after a near five-year run.

Something Sweet, best known for its home-made ice cream and zany flavors, is closing its 49-10 Vernon Blvd. store at the end of the month, according to a store manager.

The company has two other locations–one in Brooklyn and another in Staten Island– and they will remain open, a worker said.

Something Sweet opened the Vernon Boulevard store in 2016, taking over the space that had been a Delta Force Army Navy store for 25 years.

The owner of Something Sweet told LIC Talk, which was first to report on the closing, that the lease was up and that they were not renewing it since the pandemic had taken away too much of its walk-in business.

Something Sweet is known for its healthy ingredients – like low-fat milk and fresh fruit – mixed with an array of flavors. It serves ice cream, smoothies, slushies, macarons, Thai ice cream rolls along with a range of milk and bubble teas.
