Wonder Bread Bakery to Close

By Mark Wozniak

Buffalo, NY – A long standing East Side bakery is closing down. Interstate Bakeries has given notice that it will close the Wonder Bread bakery on Fougeron Street as of October 23.

A company spokesman said the Buffalo facility, built in 1923, is not as efficient as other bakeries it operates in the Northeast.

The closing will mean 150 workers will lose their jobs, although some sales people will remain on site indefinitely.
