An outlet bakery in the southwestern Nebraska town of McCook known to many locals as simply "the bread store" is closing its doors after nearly a half-century in business.

The Old Home Bakery Outlet, owned by Bimbo Bakeries USA, will close Feb. 1 after nearly 50 years in business. Employees at the location said they were saddened by the news but could not comment.

David Margulies, a representative from the public relations firm contracted by Bimbo Bakeries, tells the McCook Gazette that "they open and close these stores all the time."

A statement provided by Margulies to the newspaper said the decision was made to close some of Bimbo's retail stores "in order to focus more sharply on our core competencies."
