This is how it all began

Let me introduce you to Kevin Nelson, the owner of Price’s. Photo via Tira Davis for Bham Now

Price’s is located in the former Price’s Drugs building off Main Street in Pinson, AL. The building had been on this corner since 1898, then was remodeled in 1943. 40 years later, the original owners, he Price brothers, shut their doors permanently.

New owner Kevin Nelson bought the shop and began working on his dream.

“I grew up in Center Point—we came to Pinson all the time. When I was a kid, probably about 5 or 6 years old, I sat right there on that second stool and my older brother would spin me around. That is the only memory I have of this store. I wanted to do something with it.”

Kevin Nelson, Owner, Price’s Ice Cream

Nelson’s passion for his business was to have his grandkids sit on the same stool he did years ago. Now, after 4 years of remodeling and renovations, that goal has been fulfilled.
