Birmingham's favorite popsicle shop, Steel City Pops, has announced the closure of its original store front in Homewood. The company plans to open a new store in a different Homewood location later this year.

2020 was an extremely difficult year for all small businesses, and Steel City Pops was no exception. The team got scrappy and innovative with new product offerings, including the introduction of gourmet popcorn in late 2020. The company came out stronger toward the end of 2020 and is already showing signs of a bright 2021.

“Closing our original brick and mortar location was an extremely emotional decision to make,” said Pete Srodoski, Steel City Pops CEO. “Our leadership team has bold plans for Steel City Pops this year and new store openings are part of our plans.”

The new Homewood location will be announced closer to its grand opening. Steel City Pops is counting on the Homewood community's continued support, as they have since opening in 2012.

Until the opening of the new store, customers who are craving a Steel City Pop can still get their fix at the Summit location. And out-of-town customers can order online!
