Bakery 4 Sale

It sale time again for the Old River Road Bakery, and there are 2 contenders.
  • Harold’s Pharmacy for $50,000
  • Faceless Corporation $52,000

Harold’s Pharmacy was at the meeting, and provided a detailed plan of action. They would totally remodel the building, increase jobs to the community, and remain a valuable asset to the community.

Faceless Corporation was not available for questions nor did they, provide details as to what they would do with the property if their bid was accepted. So for all we know it could end up being a crack shack or the future home of yet another LAG enterprise. We just don’t know.

The Wilkes Barre City Taxpayers Association also proudly endorsed the bid from Harold’s Pharmacy: As anyone who lives in SWB will attest, Harold’s Pharmacy truly cares about their reputation as well as the impact their business has on the community, thus we the taxpayers could only benefit from the Bakery being sold to Harold’s.

Let’s pray that City Council also considers the impact that the sale of the building may have on the community. This is truly about more than just the price it about overall improvement to the community as a whole.  
  • Legal, reputable pharmacy in South Wilkes Barre YES!
  • Illegal, dishonorable street pharmacy AKA Crack Shack NO!

Wake Up Wilkes Barre


  1. Let's all make a bid on Percy Browns.
    Doesn't matter if you have the money or not.
    Wilkes-Barre will never let it go.
    It's in the habit of holding on to buildings that are falling apart.
    Look around The Sterling Hotel, Meyers High School, and how many vacant properties just falling down around the city -- check Vulcan Street -- we have the vacant home, condemned and rotting as we speak.
    Oh well, makes a good place for all the pigions and rats.

  2. A friend ask yesterday , " Is there a hurricane coming, cause there sure is alot of boarded up homes "
