Hi ‘Laine’s Family. Whether you’ve been with us from the beginning, or you’ve come to know us more recently, we are grateful for you and your support. It is with heavy hearts that we bring you the news that ‘Laine’s will be closing down on July 15th of this year. This is not an easy decision, but it is a necessary one. Know that we are still passionate about our mission of tackling chronic unemployment, recidivism, and wealth inequality in the hardest-hit areas of Chicago. We hope to continue to find new ways to accomplish this mission in the future.
We are planning one final sale for the 4th of July. We will have all of your favorites plus many frozen items if you’d like to build a little stash of ‘Laine’s. The ordering deadline is 6/29 at midnight. We’ve also made the ordering form a little easier to use.
We are also accepting final orders through the following methods:
- Our online store through 6/30
- Limited dessert and pastry catering (orders must be submitted by 6/30 for delivery or mailing before 7/15)
- Limited decorated cookie and custom order/gifting requests (orders must be submitted by 6/30 for delivery or mailing before 7/15)
- Equipment sale – if you happen to be in the market for commercial kitchen equipment we are holding an auction through 6/25 here.
Thank you again for being on this journey with us, we appreciate you.
Your ‘Laine’s Family,
P.S. we’d love to hear your favorite ‘Laine’s memories as we work through this tough time.
P.P.S we will share more about the factors that led to this final chapter after we’ve wrapped up all the logistics associated with closing.
