Sorry to see we are losing Bimbo. Can we get some more bimbos to replace this one?

"The Madison bakery whose bread and buns can be smelled by passing motorists on East Washington Avenue is closing early next year, a move that will cost more than 150 local jobs. Bimbo Bakeries USA announced Tuesday that it will end production at its bakery at 3401 E. Washington Ave. by Jan. 2. The company will shift production to other facilities in the region, it said in a statement."

I wonder what some developer will put in its place. It's at least a mile east of Union Corners, which seems to be the eastern boundary of most of the development activity on and around East Wash. Given the location, it wouldn't surprise me if it sat vacant for a few years. It's a shame to lose it.
