Monday night Zaro's Bakery closed their location in the Parkchester section of the Bronx after nearly 56 years in business.

"I would say it's bittersweet, but it's really not sweet," co-owner Stuart Zaro told PIX 11.

"It's really a very sad day for all of us."

The bakery was opened by Stuart's grandfather, Joseph Zaro in 1959. Over the years, customers came to savor the baked goods and friendly customer service.

One of the last patrons Monday evening said, "everything was fresh, clean, and right on time."

Although Zaro's Parkchester landlord did not give the bakery an opportunity to renew their lease, Olshan Properties said in a statement they are willing to help the company find a new location in the neighborhood.
