(WVLT)- The good old days will keep on rolling for some who love an old fashion milkshake in Nashville.
Earlier this week, Elliston Place Soda Shop announced it was closing it's doors after over 7 decades in business.
Many were sad to learn the landmark store that was a fixture in it's community since 1939- was serving it's last ice cream sundae this Saturday.
A dispute over rent put things in doubt, but Ellison Place will continue on as Nashville's oldest restaurant.
Customer Jim Gibb says,
"There's not too many soda shops around these days. There's a lot of ice cream shops, but there's not too many soda shops in the way I grew up with them. So I thought I'd bring them downtown here and introduce them to Elliston Place."
A deal is now in place to keep the fountains flowing for another five years.
