North End Bakery Thanks Customers After 110 Years In Business

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.
