A bakery in Audubon Park has served up its last slice of pie.
P is for Pie permanently closed its doors on Wednesday, November 23, after over a decade in business.
The bakery cited “insurmountable staffing challenges,” as well as difficulties in acquiring quality products due to the increased cost of goods as main reasons for the closure.
“Unfortunately, we are facing insurmountable staffing challenges, continued supply chain difficulties, increased cost of goods, and persistent inconsistent product quality; we simply cannot go on,” reads a social media post from the bakery.
Located at 2806 Corrine Drive in Audubon Park, the bakery was known for its decadent, over-the-top pie creations, also serving a variety of breakfast and lunch favorites.
“Please trust that we have made every effort to avoid this outcome and this decision was not made without many sleepless nights and lots of tears. We have had the profound honor to cater weddings, baby & bridal showers, birthdays, and countless other events, but what we will miss most is that our little pie shop brought people together, forged lasting friendships, and was a place where wonderful memories were made,” reads the post.
With the closure, P is for Pie joins nearby Bikes, Beans, & Bordeaux Cafe, which closed its doors on the same day after nearly 15 years in business.
