    I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the words “Bakery Nouveau” and “Closed” in the same sentence…

    You’d think the person who was concerned enough about Bakery Nouveau to email would have just read the sign.

      I believe they were driving/riding by, which we just did, and I can attest to the fact that the sign wasn’t legible from a distance. The windows also are papered over. I am VERY thankful that people still ask us about things like this – businesses sometimes give us a heads-up, more often don’t, and we don’t always spot everything ourselves! Even following them on social media, FB doesn’t show all statuses to all followers, and I don’t have enough hours in a day to go check every page for every one of 100+ notable businesses daily … TR

Sorry, comment time is over.
