Elie – Dairy Queen – 31 years in the neighbourhood

“Dairy Queen has been around for 31 years – it’s a family run business, four sisters and one brother, that’s me. We got brought up in this place. I walked in at six … and we’re still here! Haven’t left! There’s a lot of history in this place. We know everyone, it’s a big community here. The older generation are still around. They’re the community, they’re the ones that keep it together. The oldies. They all know each other too, which is good. So they all come in here and they meet. You see them, you come in at lunchtime and you see big groups of them hanging around. It’s good. I like their old school ways, that’s the beauty of it.”
