Bygone bakeries unlock sweet memories
Other bakeries of years gone past were Lenburg's on East First Street and Tasty Bakery on South Main Street.
How many of our readers can remember them? There was Barker Bakery, Brick's Bakery, Omar Bakery, Otto's Bakery, Snow Bakery and Wendt Bakery.
Now, fast forward to today and it is an entirely different story. Most of today's bakeries are in our supermarkets, one exception being Bryanna's Bakery on the corner of Sixth Street and South Park Avenue. Bob and Bonnie's is a fantastic doughnut shop and Baker's Pride I think Air Yeezy Boots
Now we come to the so called thrift stores. I have been told that first such store was started on Main Street back in the 1960's by interstate Brands Corp., and later moved to the present location on South Military Road where it was best known as Mrs. Karl's. It was owned for many years by Doris Rieder, who six years ago sold it to Charlene Gessner. Today, it is known as the Ol' Bread Box. There isn't very much in the line of bakery that you can't find in her store. My fond memories come from the thrift store that was located on North Hickory Street just south of Capelle Brothers and Diedrich Construction Company. The place was named Dick Brothers Bakery and being just a Air Max Womens Black And White few blocks from our home, we shopped there quite often. I will never forget when we needed any bakery, my wife always said, "Go down to the used bread store and pick up some bread or whatever." God bless her. She is probably laughing right now.

North Main Street had Hahn's Bakery with Eric's Bakery some years later. Delicious Bakery at 10 W. Division St., and Van's Bakery at 33 Forest Ave. were very close to Main Street.

My personal story about Everix was whenever my wife would make spaghetti. She would send me to Everix to pick up a loaf of Vienna bread with sesame seeds to have with our meal. Today, its garlic bread, which is just not the same or as good. If you handed out stars for quality, Everix certainly would have been a five star bakery.
