Your One-Stop Bakery: A Little Local Goes a Long Way
No matter the season or weather, nothing brings more comfort than visiting a local bakery. The smell of freshly baked pastries can give one a sense of joy after a long, stressful day. Not to mention that you then get to fill your belly with delicious baked treats.
Here at Gift Acres Shopping Centre, we believe in giving our customers the ultimate shopping experience and we believe that supporting local businesses is crucial, even when it comes to bakeries.
Why a Local Bakery?
There are so many reasons to support a bakery, but what are the reasons to support a local one? We are here to tell you that you would be missing out on a great opportunity to support your local community and economy.
Let’s take a look at some of the many reasons why local is so “lekker”:
- Keep it Fresh. When you shop at a local store, you are more likely to get freshly baked products. Think steaming hot buns right out of the oven or oh-so-tasty ginger biscuits. Not only this, but most bakeries are run or managed by professional bakers. These individuals have been baking for years and know exactly what they are doing. Baking at home can certainly be fun, but if you want a special treat that is made to perfection, we’d suggest visiting your local bakery instead.
- Take a Break. The end of the year can be very stressful. Most of us are rushing to meet last-minute deadlines and to prepare for the holiday season. We think it best to slow down for a second and just breathe. Why not visit Woolworths Food’s bakery, grab yourself a sweet or savoury treat and a cup of coffee, and find a spot to sit and read?
- Celebrate Life a Little. Then there are the never-ending special occasions like birthdays and celebratory dinners. A local bakery is the perfect place to find birthday cakes and baked goods to cater for any and all events. There are also all the lovely Sunday family braais that we enjoy in the summertime. You’ll probably want to spoil your family with some cakes or a traditional malva pudding.
- Wave Goodbye to Stress. We’ve all been in a rush before and ended up forgetting to pack our lunch. Instead of going hungry, you could always buy some fresh pies or even buns at a bakery and make a delicious sandwich.
