The Purple Cow Creamery will be changing its spots after more than a decade and a half as a successful Easton landmark.
The new name will be the Bank Street Creamery following a trademark declaration by a Michigan company and subsequent resolution of the issue.
"They're probably the finest ice cream in the area," said Easton Mayor Sal Panto, "I'm a frequent customer."
Owner Lynn Wallen is holding a 15th anniversary party for the establishment and a birthday party for the freshly named business Sunday, June 16, at its longtime location at 15 S. Bank St.
"It brings people downtown for coffee and ice cream and it's a good opportunity to visit the area," Panto said. "All products are homemade, and I don't think the name change will have any impact on their business."
The new Bank Street Creamery is along a well-traveled pedestrian walkway that Panto said has gained a lot of popularity and is also near the musical School of Rock, Maxim's 22 Bistro & Brasserie and the Bank Street Annex catering business and wedding venue.
There also will be future opportunities to sample current and specialty products at the creamery designed just for local events.
"Lynn is very gracious and does a lot of community festivals like the Garlic Festival and the Bacon Festival," Panto said.
