GLASSBORO – The popular South Jersey bakery closes the doors of one of the outlets later this week.
Liscio’s bakery, best known throughout the region for its bread, announced on Facebook on Wednesday that its Glassboro store would close on Sunday.
The bakery house at 128 S. Delsea Drive was reportedly purchased.
“The building was sold and we needed to close our store earlier than we expected,” the Facebook post said.
Liscio notes on social media that he is “looking for a possible new place.”
The bakery also has retail stores in Sicklerville and Washington Township that offer bread, hags, cakes, pizza and more.
Fans of the Glassboro location have expressed concern in response to the announcement.
“We like this place,” Amy Fasula said in a response on Facebook before adding, “I hope you stay in the area.”
“Oh no. I go there all the time!” Barb Wetzel Payne wrote: “Other places are too far away. It’s sad to see it close.”
Others saw the closure as an opportunity, begging Liscio to open up next to them.
Mantua, Mulika Hill and Vineland were among the most sought after comments.
Liscio’s was founded in 1994 and has operated the South Delsea Drive website in Glasbour since 2004, the website said.
