Ann's Bakery In Tulsa Closes For Good On Tuesday
TULSA, Oklahoma - The iconic Ann's Bakery is closing its doors and looking back on 80 years of business in Tulsa.
Ann's Bakery has been a local tradition for 80 years now and Tuesday they are closing their doors.
It all started with Ann herself. Her granddaughter said it really is bittersweet.
“It started with my grandparents in 1938 and this used to be their house and so they lifted the bakery up under the house and they lived upstairs until I think my mother was 3,” said Shannon Harris.
Ann's Bakery is still in the same location that it started in near Admiral and Harvard. They are working hard now to give customers their last taste of their favorite goodies.
They have been so overwhelmed with orders that they had to stop taking preorders last Wednesday but you can still come in the store and pick something up.
"The dynamics have changed in the bakery business but we're happy that we were able to be here this long and kinda the 80-year mark helped us make the decision," Harris said.
They will have extended hours Tuesday. They opened at 7 which is normal but will host a farewell party starting at 6 p.m.
"We have such great customers that come back that support us and are incredible and friendship that were made over the years," Harris said.
Ann's Bakery encourages you to come out, say goodbye, share some memories, and of course, have your cake and eat it too.
