Hello and good day to you all,

I am John C. Mazur, son of the former owner of Mazur's Bakery. My family is very aware of all the press surrounding the closing of our heritage bakery and we would like to speak on behalf of the event. Though we understand publications have spoken about the sudden closing, we never had a chance to formally submit a statement about the bakery my family has operated for so long. Below is a news release that my family has written and sent to various publications and news outlets in the surrounding area. We feel it is important to express our thoughts on the closing and hope you better understand our perspective on the subject. Thank you so much for being a part of our business. It truly means the world to us.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 20, 2013


ORIGINAL MAZUR’S BAKERY OWNERS SPEAK TO NEWS OF BAKERY’S ABRUPT CLOSING

Lyndhurst, New Jersey - September 20, 2013 – Mazur’s Bakery, which was sold by its original owners in 2003 after 66 years of family operation, was closed as a result of the new owner’s failure to comply with local health department standards.

"Our family created an iconic presence in Lyndhurst that was a point of pride for residents and a destination for visitors," says John Mazur Jr., whose family owns the building property and is preparing this space for future use. "The operation of the bakery ending this way is unexpected and deeply painful for us. And, of course, it is the height of injustice that not only did their neglect damage our reputation, we are left to cleaning up the mess they left."

John J. Mazur, Sr. who took the operation over from his father in 1956, was distraught when he heard the news of the closing: "I am sincerely disappointed to see that after a short period of ten years, the reputation I worked so hard to build and pass on has unfortunately deteriorated." Prior to selling the business, Mazur’s Bakery was voted the number one bakery in New Jersey by New Jersey Monthly, a status the Mazurs are hoping to restore.

"We are seeking a competent and code-compliant operator that will meet Mazur’s high expectations as well as create a strong and responsible business that gives back to the Lyndhurst community," says Mazur, Jr. "We are grateful to all of our old time customers who’ve supported the bakery throughout the years. Additionally, we appreciate to the town of Lyndhurst for making Mazur’s an integral part of the community, and we are committed to finding and operator who will uphold our expectations for years to come."

Very well stated.. Sad to see such a once proud store now closed. All due to incompetence.. I feel sorry for the original Mazur family. We know this isn't on you but on the new owners.. Sad indeed.
