RETAIL REVIEW 90 • SHOPPING CENTER BUSINESS • May 2016 the ice creamery is a hit with all audiences. "Our typical customer is really everyone," says Kamenstein. "We get everything from children to grandparents, it really runs across the board. Everyone loves ice cream, fortunately, which is a good thing." The stores range from 1,000 to 2,500 square feet, and are located in areas with great evening foot traffc. "The most im- portant thing for us is that there are a lot of bodies walking by our door," says Kamenstein. "We do very well in lifestyle centers that have a movie theater and restaurants. A lot of our business is done in the evening, so it is important to us to have co-tenants that help bring evening traffc to the street or center." The shop's signature décor can be found at each Sloan's location. "All of the stores have a similar design," says Kamen- stein. "My mother is heavily involved in the design aspect of the business. The frst stores were all hand-painted. There's a lot of detail — the ceilings and the walls have scenes with giant gummy bears and angels with garland. We still work with the same artist who painted our frst store. Over the years some of the images have been dig- itized, which makes it more practical for our growth." The company is currently seeking out locations nationally, with a focus on the West Coast. "Last year we opened a company store in Los Angeles, and it has blown away our expectations," says Kamenstein. "We're anxious to expand in Southern California. That's a really prime area for us, and now that we've opened a store there, we've been generating a strong following and have the infrastruc- ture and interest to build several stores in the near future." SCB Sloan's offers bulk candy, toys, gifts and novelties. Each whimsical location includes paintings from the original artist, who hand painted the frst locations in Florida. 804 E.
