The rumors that have been flying around about Village Baking Company opening a second retail store on Greenville Avenue are true. Today it was announced that the beautiful bakery owned by Clint Cooper will take over the space at 1921 Greenville, which is just a nod on the same side of the street as Trader Joes. That location was formerly occupied by Pipedream, a tobacco and vape shop.
