Did Lubbock’s Jimenez Bakery Quietly Close Or Just Declutter?
UPDATE: Between an employee's Facebook Post and swinging by there ourselves to find the sale sign and locked doors, we've determined that it is permanently closed.
Usually when a business closes, we know right away. This is mostly because we always have a look out for this type of news, and our darling readers send us tips as well. And for that we sincerely thank you.
However, with Jimenez Bakery, I am genuinely confused- did they really close or not? Here's hoping I can update this soon with a definitive answer, but in the meantime I can give you evidence for both possibilities. I was made aware of a Facebook post indicating that Jimenez Bakery was selling many items, though it's unclear exactly why. When I attempted to call, I was met with a busy signal.
Jimenez Bakery's Facebook has no information and the link to their website is broken. Both pretty strong indicators for a closing, although Jimenez Bakery has been around for years and perhaps didn't bother to maintain those things because it wasn't a priority.
If you go to Grubhub, it seems like you can order delivered food for tomorrow from Jimenez Bakery, but as I am no where near the delivery range, I didn't attempt to complete a transaction.
We ain't above peaking in windows, so we'll let you know as soon as we know as to any update on this head-scratcher. It's been at least 5 years since I last tried Jimenez Bakery, and if they really are closed, I'll be kicking myself for not getting one of their delicious pastries more recently. It was affordable, fresh and yummy, but I was simply never downtown. Here's hoping that the more downtown develops, the more existing businesses will get a chance to thrive.
