LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)- Several businesses across the viewing area have been struggling for normality since the COVID-19 Pandemic began. In this week’s Always Together, Always Local we are featuring O'Rear's Pastry Shop, who has had changes taking place since before the pandemic.

"We still have people today going we didn't even know you were still here or that you opened back up or anything," said Greg Litner the owner of O’Rear’s Pastry Shop.

The Lafayette staple O'Rear's wasn't supposed to be in their same location. As we previously reported Greg Litner and his wife had planned on selling the building and relocating to a different area. The couple thought they had a buyer for their building on North 9th street but that plan fell through.

"It’s a very frustrating situation because we thought everything was sold and unfortunately it didn't happen," added Litner.

The Litners were left to pick up the pieces once the sale fell through. They had already moved all of their baking equipment out of their shop, and they weren't able to get everything back in order until after February. They hope now that they are back up and running they can remind their customer of all they have to offer.

"It's amazing how many times people will bring in questions of can you do this,” added Litner. “My wife very rarely has said no she will do her darnedest to do anything she can to please the people."

That customer service is something the couple hopes the greater Lafayette community will remember.

"The only way we can keep going is with Lafayette and West Lafayette supporting us and everyone else,” added Litner. “If you go out of town to go shopping, the bad part about it is you are taking your dollars away from the livelihood of the people that are and have been here locally."
Right now O'Rear's Bakery is closed on Sundays and Mondays but they plan to open back up on those days once the business starts picking up.
