“Regrettably Crumbs has been forced to cease operations and is immediately attending to the dislocation of its devoted employees while it evaluates its limited remaining options,” Crumbs told the Journal in a statement.
The Crumbs in my local mall opened up almost two years ago — for a few months, it was pretty busy, but lately it looked like they would have had to bring people in at gunpoint. Shame, too… They were awesome cupcakes. 1
So what’s going to be the next dessert item we’re going to have shoved in our faces at every corner? Personally, I’m hoping for pie. I do love me some pie.
- In fact, I’d say the awesomeness of their cupcakes is inversely proportional to how crappy it was that they closed up shop the same day that they announced they were closing, apparently giving their employees just about no notice that they were going to be unemployed at day’s end. ↩
