Now Las Vegas has its first stand-alone Thrifty Ice Cream, the West Coast brand typically only found in Rite Aid pharmacies.

Smarty's gas station owner Pankaj Shah opened a Thrifty Ice Cream shop this year near the corner of North Pecos Road and Wigwam Parkway in Henderson. He plans to open five more stores in the valley.

Thirty-six flavors of the nostalgic ice cream are available, including Chocolate Malted Crunch and Coconut Pineapple as well as new flavors such as Circus Animal Cookies and Green Tea.

Rite Aid closed all 28 of its Las Vegas-area stores in 2008.
