Cakes, croissants, cookies, breads, tarts — D’Amici’s Bakery sold it all. Until Monday.
On Nov. 11, D’Amici’s four locations — two in Lynn, one in Melrose, and one in Reading — suddenly closed its doors. The company, founded in Lynn in 1993, was owned by married couple Sandrine and Didier Coyer, who purchased the business from Joe and Sarah Torretta in 2017.
“As most of you probably saw, all the locations of D’Amici’s are closed,” Sandrine wrote in an impassioned post on the bakery’s Facebook page on Monday. “For two years now, my husband and I poured everything we had in that business. It was our dream and we worked everyday as hard as we could to make it work. Sadly, this business and the struggles it was having became so overwhelming that we could barely survive anymore.”
According to WBZ, D’Amici’s employees learned about the closure in the early hours of Monday morning. WBZ also reported that the bakery is in the midst of filing for bankruptcy.
The locations of the now-shuttered D’Amici’s Bakery include:
- 41 Sutton St., Lynn
- 500 Eastern Ave., Lynn
- 462 Main St., Melrose
- 614 Main St., Reading
