PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Longtime Providence staple Olga’s Cup and Saucer will close on Dec. 24, according to a store manager.
Olga’s originally opened in 1988. According to the Journal, the bakery moved to Providence in the 1990s.
The closure was originally reported by The Providence Journal. According to a report from the newspaper, the owner is shuttering the bakery and cafe because it’s losing money.
A store manager for Olga’s told Eyewitness News that Seven Stars Bakery will lease the space and open at the Point Street location in 2020. It would become the locally-operated bakery chain’s fifth location.
Seven Stars owner Bill Daugherty confirmed the news Tuesday evening, saying they would likely open their doors by late spring or early summer. He said he was excited about the opportunity to open a store in the evolving Jewelry District.
In a Facebook post, Olga’s said it would be honoring all gift cards and reward redemptions until Christmas Eve.
