Thrifty ice cream — a portal to childhood — is being sold to Albertsons. What does that mean for its future?
Albertsons is buying the Thrifty ice cream brand - a cult-favorite treat born in L.A. - by taking over Rite Aid. It plans to keep Thrifty alive and sell the ice cream in its grocery stores. But it's not clear if the company will change what people love about Thrifty: the flavors and low prices.
