Swissbakers Is Reopening Its Reading Location

A few months ago, a local group of bakery-cafes shut down all of its locations, only to reopen one of its shops a month later. Now we have learned that at least one of its other outlets is getting ready to open back up as well.

According to a source, Swissbakers is reopening its Reading location, with a Facebook comment confirming this, and the comment also says that they hope to open the shop in Boston's North Station again as well, though our source only told us about the Reading location reopening.

All locations of Swissbakers closed in early December, including shops in Boston's North Station, Cambridge's Harvard Square, and Reading (another branch in the Boston Public Market had closed in October, but the Allston shop reopened in January).

The address for the Reading location of Swissbakers is 32 Lincoln Street, Reading, MA, 01867. The website for the business is at
