BOSTON (CBS) — It has been serving up baked goods on Salem Street in the North End for 110 years.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports

That’s all over for Broschetto’s, which is closing their doors one last time Sunday evening.

Rita DiStefano’s dad and a partner bought the bakery in 2000 but this year a new landlord took over.

“Today is sad especially knowing I won’t see these people anymore,” she said.

DiStefano says he tripled their rent, making it impossible to stay open.

Fortunately for area restaurants the commercial bread operation will continue out of a different bakery.

On Sunday at noon, the bakery is having a party to say thank you to their customers.

WBZ-TV called the company that manages the building to ask about the rent increase, but nobody called back.
