Spandex City is MOVING - October 2023

We are happy to announce that in October 2023, after 10 years in our current location, we will be EXPANDING and MOVING to a new location - 8420 Bellhaven Blvd (in the Coulwood Shopping Center, just 1.4 miles away - with DG Market, Sports Page, NAPA, and MI Crossfit). This new location will be almost 70% larger than our current location, allowing us to provide you a larger seating area, more flavors of ice cream, and an expanded selection of merchandise.

Our exact move date is not set yet, but please don't panic if you show up at our current location one day in October and we are gone. Just turn right out of the shopping center onto Bellhaven Blvd, drive 1.4 miles, and we will be on your left. There may be some hiccups and minor service disruptions during the transition, so please be patient with us as we prepare for a Grand Re-opening in October!
