City Bakery Opens — Free Pie

by Laurel | June 23rd, 2017

From The Springfield Republican, 23 June 1952

Today bakery pies are in the $20.00 range … sounds like it was a great grand opening offer. Note: this is a historic post, please look at the date. I don’t remember City Bakery on High Street, but then my parents usually patronized Langelier’s back then. Anyone remember this place?

Grand Opening of City Bakery
34 High St., Holyoke
