One of east Idaho’s popular cookie shops now has a new location, and a FREE cookie is coming your way.

Amy and Garth Romrell, owners of The Cookie Place, opened their fourth location at 404 South Utah Avenue next to Jimmy John’s in Idaho Falls on April 1, 2019.

They’ll be celebrating with a grand opening Wednesday, May 8, 2019.

If you come in during business hours that day, you will receive a FREE chocolate chip cookie while supplies last.

According to Amy Romrell, she prides herself on having a homegrown cookie shop that uses real ingredients.

“I think people like cookies because they like to have a treat on the run. What I wanted to bring to the market is a gourmet cookie on the run, one that you bite into and think it could’ve come out of your own kitchen. When people eat our cookies, I want it to be a memorable experience. That’s been my goal all along,” – Amy Romrell
