Strollo’s Lighthouse, Point Pleasant Beach

The Italian-ice stand, a beloved staple in several Jersey Shore towns, has officially closed its Point Pleasant Beach location after 25 years. A few days after its initial announcement on Instagram, Strollo’s shared a letter from owner Jimmy Callano, who addressed the multiple factors that went into what he calls “one of the toughest business decisions I have ever made.” Amid the sadness many Jerseyans have expressed online, they can look forward to a new Strollo’s location, set to open in Ocean Township this spring.
