Julie’s Bakeshop – Now Open for Business

Julie’s Bakeshop opened its branch in Talakag today. Throughout the day, the bakeshop personnel offered free bread and cake tasting opportunities to the public. In the afternoon, the children and passers-by were entertained by a performance from Julie, the Mascot.

Julie’s Bakeshop occupies part of the ground floor of the recently constructed commercial building owned by Ex-Mayor Amado Noble. This is situated beside Alex Noble’s residence and in the area where St. Benedict’s Pharmacy used to be before it was destroyed by that big fire in 2007.

This new bakeshop will now bring the total number of bakeries operating in Talakag to 8. Well its so obvious that Talakag residents are big bread and cake consumers.
