A Greenville ice cream shop that was once called one of the best in America has closed its business at a Greenville County shopping mall.

Molly & Myles Ice Cream, on North Pleasantburg Drive in the Cherrydale Point shopping mall, opened in 2018, its owner Nicole O'Brien told WYFF4.com.

In 2019, the ice cream parlor and cake shop, named after O'Brien's two children, was featured in an article on Today.com as one of the "absolute best ice cream shops in America."

"The chef-driven establishment from Greenville's self-proclaimed 'weirdest family' has been described as 'if Willy Wonka was tossed in a tornado with the Avengers on a Star Wars movie set,'" the article said about her and her husband, Steve, who was also co-owner.

An online auction of the restaurant equipment from the closing Molly and Myles location is underway and includes tables, chairs and "fun memorabilia and figurines" used to decorate the store.

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. -- The Cicis Pizza in Fort Walton Beach will be closing permanently before the end of year.

The restaurant is located on Mary Esther Cut Off NW.

In a Facebook post, the Fort Walton Beach Cicis says its landlord "will no longer allow us to operate a CiCis Pizza location in the building." The restaurant says the circumstances are out of its control.

"We want to see you guys, and give you the best CiCis Experience possible in our last moments open. You guys have been so amazing to us these past two decades, and we appreciate everything you have done," the post states.

The restaurant did not state the exact date of its last day.

The Cicis added that it is working to help its staff.

"We are trying to help our team, and our management staff with their bills due to us closing. We do have everything on an online auction, if you could please share the link so we can earn a little bit of extra income for the team!!

Kebab-Je Rotisserie & Grille has shuttered its restaurant at Stonecrest at Piper Glen.

The 1,766-square-foot restaurant’s last day was May 11. Kebab-Je had been a part of that south Charlotte shopping complex since October 2017.

The Mediterranean concept’s Matthews location remains open.

Owner Yasser Sadek declined to comment.

Market conditions and staffing issues were driving forces behind the decision to close at Stonecrest, says David Thompson, with Madalyn Auction.

He’s been tapped to auction off the restaurant’s equipment, with everything from dining tables and chairs to refrigerated display cases, shelving units, gas grills and deep fryers up for grabs.

“It’s a very common method for restaurateurs that are exiting their business to try and recoup some capital,” Thompson says.

He says demand for equipment has skyrocketed during the last six months as the supply-chain crisis has intensified. For example, a popular fryer has a 40-week waiting period. People purchasing through auctions can expect to pay 10% to 60% of retail prices, depending on demand.

"There’s massive savings to have,” Thompson says.

The auction ends on June 27 at 6 p.m.
