Marble Slab Creamery Opens In Lufkin

A new ice cream shop opened Thursday in Lufkin.

The line of customers at the Marble Slab Creamery was out the door for most of the day. The most requested flavor on opening day was sweet cream.

Profits from Thursday's sales went to Jonathan Carrington, an eight-year-old boy who had an aneurysm at birth.

He's a "young boy that has experienced a lot of medical problems and needs extra care," said manager, Wayne Miles. "My brother and sister-in-law, owners of this place, wanted to do this for him."

The Marble Slab Creamery is on Tulane Drive.
