Announced a short time ago on their Social Media, the Rochester Apache Mall Cold Stone store has closed permanently. And, as has been the case for too many Rochester businesses closing, the uncertain times are being blamed.

As the Facebook post mentions, two locations remain open. On South Broadway and on Marketplace Drive. Interesting thing, though. A quick Google search and already only two locations are listed. It often takes much longer to get Google to stop listing a closed location (or it lists as Closed Permanently).
