St. Paul Classic Cookie closed until further notice
Cookie baking is on hold for the time being
Craig McNitt for St. Paul Classic Cookie Co.
Like many other small businesses, the company was hit hard during the recession and was forced to close for a brief period in 2009. They reopened the bakery in 2010 but stated that ongoing financial problems and issues with construction of the light rail line on University have been hard hurdles to overcome.
We have had almost every piece of our equipment break down this summer, and we continue to keep on keeping on. However, the city took our license away yesterday and we cannot open again until it is paid, which is $714 with all the late fees and we are at zero right now. We also have an impending electric bill, which is not going to be paid because we can't open the shop to bake cookies and other bills which are due soon. We still believe in what we are doing and we have a glimmer of hope that something will work out.
