Blue Bell ice cream returns to Richmond

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Blue Bell ice cream is back!

The company, which has a distribution center in Ashland, is returning service to Richmond and other Virginia cities beginning Monday, March 25.

“We are glad to be back and excited to be in a position to expand our sales territory,” said Jimmy Lawhorn, vice president, sales and marketing for Blue Bell, in a press release. “Our delivery trucks arrived a few weeks ago. As soon as fans saw the Blue Bell logo they began contacting us wanting to know when they can expect to find our ice cream in stores. We are extremely thankful for the warm response from so many of them.”

The frozen treat is available at many Kroger, Publix, Walmart and Walgreens stores.

In addition to the Richmond metro area, Blue Bell is returning to Charlottesville, Ashland, Fredericksburg and Petersburg, among others.
