UPDATE (11:35 a.m. Feb. 23)—After more than 20 years in the Perry Hall Crossing Shopping Center, near the intersection of Belair and Silver Spring roads, Cake & Wedding Cottage is planning to relocate.
"We're not going out of business, just going to a new store with minimum downtime," said a manager who declined to be identified. "It was a sudden thing ... we lost our lease."
The independently owned store's new location has not yet been finalized, although management hopes to keep the store close to or within the Perry Hall area. It specializes in baking supplies and wedding-themed specialty items like cake toppers and veils.
Sale items will be 50 percent off until Saturday or Sunday of this week, when the store is expected to close for business. It must be vacated by the end of the month.
Cake & Wedding Cottage is expected to open in its new location by mid-March, according to the manager.
