Culver Dairy Queen closes doors Sunday

July 30, 2011

After 28 years, Culver's Dairy Queen restaurant, on State Road 10, sees its last day of business July 31. A sign posted on the facility's doors said owner Barbara Justice is choosing to focus her energy on her remaining stores in LaPorte following the unexpected death of her husband, Douglas, last year.

The sign also noted Justice "did not resign the lease on the building as it would require too many upgrades to maintain the DQ image."

Gift cards and discount coupons issued at the local store will be honored at LaPorte area Dairy Queens, the sign said, and most Dairy Queens honor national coupons.

"Thank you for your patronage over the years," the sign concluded. "I will miss the Culver community!"

Culver's Dairy Queen opened in the summer of 1983, under previous owners.

Not surprised to see it closing. I would have to say that with all the money around Culver in the summers and weekends that they should have done a much better than what it was. Hopefully something will move into that building. Hate to see it just sit there like some of the other buildings near it.
