According to a spokesperson for the Metropolitan Bakery, the shop in Chestnut Hill will close this Friday, Jan. 10, after a 15-year run on the Avenue. The closure is said to come at the end of the shop’s lease.
Despite its closure, the bakery will still have a presence on the Hill. It will open up a stand at the Chestnut Hill Farmer’s Market and offer many of the same products it offers at its Reading Terminal location: breads, pastries and packaged goods. The opening date has not yet been determined.
