WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Usually when you mention "bittersweet" and "cupcake" in the same sentence your mouth begins to water, but it might be your eyes that water when you hear the word combo next time.
Coastal Cupcakes will be closing up shop at its Wrightsville Beach location starting January 1, 2014. Retails operations will also be suspended at the store in downtown Wilmington, but we did say "bittersweet."
If you are in love with the cupcakes you will still be able to order them, but only in bulk. Wholesale cupcake orders will remain in operation, gift certificates will be honored, and all orders already placed will be filled. They will also still accept wholesale orders of 10 dozen or more.
The move to shut down the locations was announced on the Coastal Cupcakes Facebook page. The post said all of their future focus will be on Topsee Tulip Frosting.
There will still be random openings at their storefront downtown for pop up sales. You can find out when those days are going to be by following this link.
