According to Helena Herault
The Anděl bakery near Lamballe suddenly closed its doors in the middle of the week. A message from the owners on the door:
Permanent closure of the bakery. After multiplying the electricity bills by 5, we can’t go on.
On a Wednesday afternoon, the phone rings empty.
victims of inflation
No, it wasn’t a long-planned departure. Frédéric and Sylvie were actually driven by energy costs. They are direct victims of current inflation.
Contacted by phone, mayor Nicole Poulain confirms.
There is also a bar restaurant and hairdresser in Anděl village. Therefore, the bakery was not the only business in the town of 1,200 inhabitants.
However, the sudden closure of a business of first necessity is inevitably surprising.
Nicole Poulain regrets:
The role of the town hall is of course also to be a support for its traders. But in these proportions it is impossible.
But the municipality does not give up and will do everything to replace the departing baker.
On site since 2016
The mayor did not want to comment further on the situation. “We are going to address residents directly in our municipal newsletter, which will be published by the end of the month. Our bakers also write a small note there. »
Sylvie and Frédéric Verceux took over the village bakery at the end of 2016. Originally from the Loiret, they chose Brittany for their last years of work.
Many reactions on the networks
Reactions quickly flourished on the networks. “Courage to them in this sad trial.” »
It’s sad to see local shops disappear like this…
“It’s terrible and unfortunately the start of a long list of businesses and individuals that will go out of business,” predicts this netizen.
I hope with all my heart that someone will take over this bakery that we already miss. Courage to the former owners who had a heavy heart to leave this business.
Sylvie and Frédéric concluded their message on the door with a wink full of affection for their customers:
“Thank you to everyone who has been faithful to us during these 6 years. Thank you for understanding. »
