Popular North Shore bakery abruptly posts ‘out of business’ sign

D’Amici’s Bakery specialized in wedding cakes


The cases are full of baked goods, but the doors are all locked. After about 25 years, all four D’Amici’s Bakery locations were suddenly closed Monday. “Sorry we are closed,” the handwritten sign on the door said. “Out of business.”The business operated two locations in Lynn, as well as bakeries in Melrose and Reading. They specialized in custom wedding cakes, but the downtown Lynn location also offered a sit-down breakfast menu with a coffee bar. According to its company website, the business was founded in 1993 on Eastern Avenue in Lynn. The business said it could bake 1,000 pounds of cake in an average week, using 750 pounds of frosting.”If you are not aware, Joe and I sold the bakeries in 2017. The thriving business we built over 24 years collapsed under the new owners,” former owner Sarah Shea Torretta wrote in a Facebook post. “If we could turn back time and take a different direction we would,” Torretta said.
