Hennepin Avenue lost its second bakery in recent weeks: Solomon’s Bakery has closed at 2827 Hennepin Ave. S. and relocated to 1085 Grand Ave. in St. Paul.
Owner Veronica Anczarski said the decision was a financial one. The storefront saw plenty of car traffic, she said, but not enough foot traffic.
“I had to close it to survive,” she said. “In Uptown, everybody is in a rush to go somewhere.”
She thanked her customers in a Facebook post.
“These [past] two years in uptown have been really special for us, and we don’t regret one minute of it!,” she said.
Wuollet Bakery has also closed at 25th & Hennepin.
