Bread Stores Close Their Doors

JULY 13, 2005 -- No more discount Twinkies. No more loaves of Merita. Some popular bread stores in our area have closed.

The doors are shut at Merita thrift stores on Kerr Avenue and Carolina Beach Road.

A spokesman for the company says the closings are part of corporate restructuring due to bankruptcy. News 6 is told it's unknown if the stores will ever reopen.
