Bread store closing after nearly 50 years
McCOOK, Nebraska -- The Old Home Bakery Outlet on East B Street in McCook, owned by Bimbo Bakeries USA, is closing Feb. 1 after nearly 50 years in business. Employees at the location were saddened by the news but unable to comment.
David Margulies, a representative from the public relations firm contracted by Bimbo Bakeries USA, said the closing was not part of a mass closing of stores and added "they open and close these stores all the time."
According to a statement provided by Margulies, "Bimbo Bakeries is a manufacturer, marketer and distributor of the world's best fresh baked breads, buns, rolls and cake products. In order to focus more sharply on our core competencies, the decision was made to close some of our retail stores."
