Celebrity Bakery has closed its door at the Highland Park Village location after almost three decades of business. The decision to relocate comes from the current owners of Celebrity Baker, Brittany and Brian Livingston. The couple purchased the business in May 2015.
While the closure of the location wasn’t unexpected, as we’ve known of this move since June, the surprise was it closing now. The Village location was expected to remain open until early 2016.
Since 1989, Celebrity Bakery has been serving baked goods, sandwiches, and salads to the frequent shoppers of HP Village. Fortunately, the restaurant hasn’t ventured too far from its previous location. Celebrity Bakery has opened its new, larger space in the Shops of Highland Park.
What are your thoughts on this move? Are you excited to see the restaurant open in a larger site? Or will you miss the familiarity of being able to stop at Celebrity Bakery during one of your visits to HP Village?
