CIRCEVILLLE – As reported before, Circleville Fast freeze is currently closed and will reopen with the same traditions as it has held for years.
In 2020 owner of the building passed away and since then it has been operated by Karen Nagel who posted a heartfelt statement on Facebook on February 15th, “Well it’s closing day. At 4:30 it’s paper signing time. Today I will lock the door to Circleville Fast Freeze for the last time. Such an emotional day. But I know Paul is proud of me. And when one door closes another one opens. I can do this!! With tears in my eyes but I can do this!! Thanks to all my Amazing friends & Family for all of your support & love to help me make this transition. Love you all so much.”

Accoridng to Donna Jenkins who has worked there for some time, a planned grand reopening will come out under new management Jim Cooksey.
Since then a lot has happened at the location, and we were at the location for a visit today. The building is still in the middle of renovations, with a complete interior renovation. New walls have gone up, along with new windows and interior sheeting. The contractor on site said that they are about halfway done with renovations and still have a lot of work to do.
