Classic Bakery to shut doors

Family-owned Sydney bakery, Classic Bakery, is being forced to leave its location after nearly 30 years.

Owners Van and Tina Huynh, who currently run Classic Bakery in Winston Hills Mall in Western Sydney, have been told they must vacate the shop by February 9.

According to news.com.au a sign has been put on the bain-marie that says, “Sorry we’re closing down. Building management has decided not to renew our leave. Unfortunately we had no say in this decision.

“Our last day of business will be on the 9th of February.

“It has been a pleasure serving you and this community for the last 28 years.”

The bakery is in the process of petitioning their landlords, with thousands already throwing their support behind the small business.

The closure has come following the confirmation Bakers Delight will be returning to Winston Hills Mall.

Former Hills Shire Mayor Dr Michelle Byrne has also spoken out against the closure, and said hopefully common sense would prevail.

“It is no surprise the community is rallying around Tina and Van and supporting them in their fight to save their bakery,” she said to news.com.au.

“So far they have collected over 3000 signatures from locals wanting the bakery to remain.”

Winston Hills Mall management issued a statement about the closure, saying privacy and commercial terms are in confidence and constrained any further comment on the matter.

“As a national top performing sub-regional shopping centre, Winston Hills Mall has a history of support its retailers, providing advice and assistance,” the statement said.

“Management and the landlord wish to thank Mr and Mrs Huynh for their commitment and support of the Winston Hills community and its local centre.

“We wish them all the very best in their future endeavours.”
