Premier Hudson Valley Eatery Closing First Store, ‘Unbelievably Upsetting’ to Residents
Some Hudson Valley residents are very disappointed a premier eatery is closing its original store.
Last August, when Hudson Valley Post got a sneak peek of The Academy, one of the Hudson Valley's most anticipated hot spots, we were told The Newburgh Flour Shop, a family-owned bakery, would be opening up a second location inside The Academy in Poughkeepsie, New York.
This week, the owners of The Newburgh Flour Shop confirmed a major change that some residents feared. See more below.

The Newburgh Flour Shop Renamed After Poughkeepsie, New York Location Opens
"The Newburgh Flour Shop is becoming Bread & Batter Bakery as we expand our reach from Newburgh to Poughkeepsie. And though the name is changing, the team of experienced professional chefs behind the exceptional cakes, breads, and pastries that you’ve come to expect from us will stay the same," owners write on its website.
Customers in Newburgh hoped this meant owners would operate both locations. However, sadly, the owners confirmed on Wednesday the Newburgh location is closing.
