Great Eastern Bakery to reopen its door after 9 years

Great Eastern Bakery, which closed its outlet nine years ago will be reopening its door on December 17 at Kolkata’s New Market.

The bakery will be named as ‘The Bakery from The Lalit Great Eastern’ will stock an assortment of breads, patties, plum and fruit cakes, cookies and chocolates.

"There's a lot of anticipation among old customers as well as fellow shop-owners at New Market about the reopening of the Great Eastern outlet. The interiors are currently being renovated and the store should be up and running by December 17," said, Dilip Mishra, Resident Manager, The Lalit Great Eastern Kolkata.

The bakery shop will be located next to Imperial bakery in E block along the biscuit line.

The 130 sq ft confectionery outlet which was known for chicken and vegetarian puffs, breads, bread sticks, fruit cakes and cheese straw, the shop had shut down on November 30, 2005, after the hotel was sold to the Lalit Group.

"Since New Market is not a five-star property, we have to be conscious of pricing the products right because customers there are price-sensitive. If someone wants to order a special cake that is made at the hotel bakery, we will take the order and deliver it later," added, Mishra.
