It's the greatest aroma Owensboro has to offer, in my opinion. And it always has been. From the time it was the Colonial Bakery until now as Bimbo Bakeries.

Or maybe I should "for now" as Bimbo Bakeries.

14 News-WFIE is reporting that the facility will close in September and will, therefore, take 125 jobs with it.

Obviously, the wonderful aroma of baking bread PALES in comparison to those who will no longer have that job.

Man, that place is an absolute LANDMARK in this town.

I can't help but wonder what will become of that building. I do know from WFIE's report that the thrift store will stay.

But the bakery, as of this September, will no longer be.

This makes me sad.
