    3-16-17 Another story about a niche being filled: Chris’ Bakery, the only full service bakery in Oak Harbor

    I am going to sound repetitious, but I just published another story on Whidbey Local about a business that is filling a void.

    Chris’ Bakery was opened by the Christensen family  50 years ago in Oak Harbor. The bakery was closed in 1998, when the second generation of Christensens moved back east to be with other family members.

    In 2015 they decided to return to Whidbey Island, and in 2016 found an appropriate place to use for a new Chris’ Bakery.

    Now, with the help of their daughter (and her 16-year old daughter in the summer), Patrick and Maribeth Christensen have just opened the only made-from-scratch bakery in town.

    In addition to filling a niche, this is also a story of a family that has a history in the town returning and re-establishing a business still known to many.

    The Business Spotlight story of Chris’ Bakery can be found at Whidbey Local
