Weather Vane Ice Creme
In 1960, Bill
Sage opened a milk store on Washington Avenue.
Originally it was intended to pay for his daughters
college. He sold a variety of food including beef
fritters and ice creme. In fact, the ice creme did so
well, it eventually became just an ice creme shop.
Little did he know, that it would also become a town
In 1986 Doug and Susan Schulte bought the store, and
opened another on Maryville Road. The current owner,
Jason Brown bought the Maryville store as an employee in
1996 and a year later bought the Washington store. Since
then, Jason has opened two more stores. Weather Vane has
been around for about years now.
Over the years Weather Vane has continued to grow
popular in the Granite City area by serving quality
products. Weather Vane has participated in many local
events such as carnivals, sponsoring little league
teams, and holding fundraisers. Today, however, the
store has grown upon the original idea and has expanded
the menu to offer a larger variety of ice creme.
