The Full Story
The Atlantic and Pacific Tea Company (A&P) built this Bakery and Warehouse as part of their hub and spoke manufacturing and distribution model for the company. For its first 50 years, the company operated as a bakery serving its stores in the area.
After being in business for over 50 years, A&P closed its facilities and the building fell into disrepair as it was passed from owner to owner. In 2008 the building was converted into light industrial use. Eventually, it become The Bakery we know today.
