Once word got out this morning that Great Cakes might close tomorrow — owner Rick Dickinson was unsure whether he could weather the tough period between the holidays and Easter — Westporters went to work.
Folks flooded the popular bakery. They bought coffee, challah and cupcakes.
They handed over cash and checks. And they opened “pre-paid accounts,” to tide Rick through the next few weeks.
Here’s a sign on the front window, made and posted by some Kool2BKind moms:
“Save Our Store” it says. “Open your pre-pay account. Great Cakes knows it’s Kool To Be Kind.”
Meanwhile, here’s another we-love-Great Cakes poster, created by Kings Highway 2nd grader Ryan Lapatine:
Do you like cake and cupcakes? Great Cake’s
They also have cupcakes, bread and coffe.
You can sit inside.
The employees are REALY nice.
What’s especially impressive is that Ryan chose Great Cakes as her topic for a “persuasive writing” class assignment.
