Christiansburg Bakery Closing up Shop

Posted: Updated:

The lunch rush at Grama's Goodies in Christiansburg was reduced to a crawl.

"They make the best chicken salad on Earth," Anna Rossomando said.

Some customers waited for nearly 45 minutes at the sweet shop and bakery for something good to eat from Grama's.

"I love this place. They have the best cupcakes and blueberry muffins and cookies," Taylor Helms said.

"Anytime we have people come from our corporate office in Denver, they say, 'Hey, we heard about this place called Grama's, let's go, let's go,'" Justin Baer said.

But what workers called the longest lines ever were likely because the "Mom and Pop" bakery that has been around for more than a decade is closing. Many people found out on Facebook, where the company posted they were shutting down.

The property owner declined our request for an on camera interview but workers say the 15-year lease is up, and they'll close the door for good on March 17.

We again checked the company's Facebook page, and Saint Patrick's Day will be their last day. It also states the company has tried everything, but does not plan to relocate.

"I think it's sad but I guess it's time for them to go. I don't know what the situation is but I'm really going to miss them," Rossomando said.

"I'm shocked. It seems like it's been around forever you know," Baer said.

So you better come get your goodies now, because in ten days Grama's is going away for good.
