Whoa. Heller’s Bakery tells me via email:

“We failed to make an agreement with the landlord to extend our lease. We are going to close for Christmas and Friday the 26th. However, we are going to open Saturday the 27th and last day Sunday the 28th, as a goodbye to all the supporters during the past years. We are on a search for a new location.”

“Dear PoPville,

Wednesday around 11:30am a young man was observed by a neighbor on my back porch looking in windows and trying the back door. He then left the back of the house and came to the front door, knocked, and tried to converse with me. Upon refusing to open the door and with my large dogs snarling and jumping on the door, he left. A few pictures of him were obtained as he walked away from the house. See below.
