Message from Johnson's

We want to take the time to update you on our operations. We have determined that we will be temporarily closing our New Albany, Dublin, and Chicago stores effective Sunday, March 22 at 9 pm.

Our Bexley location will remain open and offer carryout, call ahead pick-up, and delivery within 2 miles of the Bexley shop. Right now, the hours are Monday-Saturday 11 am-9 pm and Sunday 2 pm-9 pm.

If you have never stopped by our Bexley shop, it’s our original location filled with nostalgia that opened in 1950. We have opened up the walk-up windows, so you can just come up and get your order from outside.

Starting Wednesday, March 25, we will be offering a special pick-up and carryout hour for senior citizens and other at-risk populations at our Bexley location. The "Senior Only" hour will be Monday-Saturday 10 am-11 am and Sunday 1 pm-2 pm. We are happy to be able to offer this dedicated time.

We also encourage guests to visit our online shop at We can ship our pints anywhere in the US, and you can also order Gift Cards. (We offer free or reduced rate shipping.)

We want to continue serving up happiness as much as possible during this time of strife.
