I can already taste the challah or the black and white cookies!

Zaro’s Bakery is reopening its doors in Parkchester tomorrow almost 2 years after they shut their doors, much to the neighborhood and the borough’s disappointment, where they once stood for 56 years.

And they’re reopening is JUST in time for Thanksgiving and the holiday season!

Back in April, Welcome2TheBronx first broke the story that they were returning to our borough, now we’re glad the day has come.

Occupying a much smaller space just a couple of doors away from their original location, the reopening marks the return of their retail presence in our borough where the company was founded 90 years ago.

As part of their coming back to the community, Zaro’s has pledged to donate 25% of tomorrow’s Reopening Day sales at their new 1309 Metropolitan Avenue location to ongoing humanitarian relief efforts for Puerto Rico following the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria.

“We’re thrilled to be back in the old neighborhood and to see so many warm and familiar faces again. As we heat up the ovens once more we do so tomorrow in aid of our friends and family in Puerto Rico who are dear to so many of our valued customers – in Parkchester and throughout the City.” said Brian Zaro, executive vice president of Zaro’s Family Bakery in a press release.

I’ll definitely be there tomorrow to welcome them back, hope you can stop by at some point and support a great cause and Bronx institution at the same time!
