Curiosity Almost Killed The Cat

Who else is wondering what is going on at the corner of Butler and Bethlehem?kodak 1.24.11 028 I must drive past this spot at least 2,3,4 times a day, everyday, and for years it sat, former Exxon, long defunct and forever for sale. I did notice the for sale sign come down some time ago and a little activity in the past few weeks and them BOOM, like a thief in the night appeared a two story building. I have heard some rumors as to what this newly constructed, rather large, building will become and today I finally got a definite answer. The details I have are few, but I do know that once finished it will be a bakery/coffee shop, complete with a drive thru. There will also be a few apartments on the second floor.

I personally am thrilled to see something positive happening in this depressed space, after all it is one of the main entrances to town. However, I am a little concerned about how this will affect Sweet Bytes as they have just revamped their business to be primarily a bakery, but hopefully there will be enough business to go around and everyone will work in harmony.

As soon as I have further details, you’ll be the first to know! What are your thoughts, are you happy to see a new bakery opening, will you stop in once their open and give them a shot?

    That’s fantastic! I can’t wait to hear more about it. That corner was such an eyesore for years.

    Thanks for your comment Alicia, and I agree with you 100%! I did get a little more info since writing the post; it is not a full fledge bakery as I was initially told, they will have donuts, muffins, bagels, coffee and tea to start. They will only occupy half of the first floor (the other half is available for lease) and operate for take out only, as there isn’t room for tables and seating. If all goes as planned they should open in April. Maybe I’ll see you there 🙂
