The bakery, once thought to be temporarily closed for remodeling, has closed for good.

A "for sale" sign now is in the window.

Employees either declined to comment on the closing or did not return emails and phone calls.

, owner Sue Bogoevski said her family has owned the bakery at the corner of 10th and Vinewood streets for 35 years. The bakery itself has an even longer history.

Aw how sad! I loved getting bread from them, there is something so much more satisfying about buying bread from an actual bakery.

I'm gonna miss that place... (sniff sniff)

Although I have only been here a handful of times it saddens me. There are not a lot of bakeries left anymore and Meijer and Kmart do not count. :(

Its a sad day, VB has been a regular stop for my family as long as I have lived. My grandma used to live above it back in the 40's.

I remember the Angel Wings (forgot the Polish name) and Creampuffs from back in the 1950s. I have to say, however, my favorite bakery was the Oakleaf Bakery on Oak and 12th. Does anyone remember the corner store one block away at 9th and Vinewood wher the owner would make his own smoked and fresh Kielbasa? http://www.wtv-zone.com/killertop/places.html

I do remember that corner store! My grandma lived less than a block away and would send us shopping for her.

They had the best caraway rye bread. They only made it on Friday and Saturday and if you didn't get there early enough, they would be sold out.

I am so sad, Vinewood Bakery is the only bakery that I have bought Paceki!!!! I sure will miss the place. I was eager to go in at the end of the remodeling.

Can we still get their baked goods at the Farm Market on Thursdays? I heard their goods are available on King and Grange too

well...if it is an economy issue...and if you do not truly support your local businesses...(not the big box corporations like Paneras, Tim Hortons, Starbucks).....then the smaller authentic specialty shops. like the Vinewood Bakery WILL CLOSE!. thank-you Vinewood Bakery for the most delicious gourmet Eastern European specialties that only the ingredient of pure Love could of created....a true loss for the community..

Why has no one mentioned their other location, Nibo's PIzza on King Rd @ Grange in Riverview? Same employees, same delicious treats, plus more!

Thanks for sharing the info, Cathy. There is no mention on the closed Wyandotte building of another location, nor did any of the employees I contacted for the story mention the other location.

As an explanation http://www.wtv-zone.com/killertop/places.html is a link to a number of various businesses in Wyandotte that have closed over the years, including the Wyandotte Toy Company. I think that there were a number of communities like Wyandotte in the '40s and '50s but they have changed and Wyandotte has been able to maintain a good deal of that charm. It must be protected however.

That's strange. Why wouldn't they want to advertise it? There used to be a sign on the VB door about it. The other location is not as convenient, that's for sure, and I miss the Vinewood Bakery very much.

I agree with you, Tammy. They had the best paczki! Hope they make them at Nibo's.
Bonnie July 01, 2011 at 12:36 AM
Thank you for that info!

@ Jason, I had stopped by Vinewood April or May to talk to them about Lincoln Park Farmers Market because they had sold at our market in past years. There was a sign stating it was being remodeled and directing people to their pizza business in Riverview. I thought it was odd too. About four years ago I found something online that indicated that the bakery was for sale. Best wishes to Sue and her family for the future.

This is the most dirtiest, nasty place that I ever seen there were rats running around. Roof leaking broken floors, and the walls were bulging and smelled of rat poop!!!
Stacy West February 23, 2012 at 02:35 AM
