Sweet news from the Shops at 2000 Penn: Captain Cookie and the Milkman will open its long-awaited brick-and-mortar store Thursday.

Captain Cookie had a sign posted on its truck this week that read, “Ask me about my storefront,” and a post from its Twitter account confirmed the opening day.

Owner Kirk Francis has said that he hopes to turn the store into a “campus hub” for students, and he’ll serve cookies, coffee, milkshakes and home-brewed sodas.┬áThe store will also make late-night deliveries. It will replace Cone E. Island, which shut down last spring after 27 years in the Shops at 2000 Penn.
