Hatboro Morphing into Two Bakery Town

Juliano's Deli has closed and will reopen as Nonno's Bakery.

On one side of York Road sits . On the other - in a few months - will be "Brooklyn style" Nonno's Bakery.

The latter, which will be housed in the recently closed , will open in three to four months following renovations. Nonno's will feature Italian specialties, including cannolis and specialty breads, according to Hatboro Main Street Manager Stephen Barth.

Too many bakeries? That's like saying too many pizza parlors and nail salons in Hatboro. People will go to the one they like best, period. Basic economics.

I am beyond excited for this! I love Gelato and usually have to trek to Ambler to get it. This is awesome!! Welcome Nonno's:)

Sounds like a great addition to Hatboro! Looking forward to some authentic Italian desserts!

I think it is sad that they would do this to Lochel's! Lochel's always works so hard to provide fresh baked goods to the town!!!!! When is enough enough? I do not understand why anyone would want to open a bakery literally across the street from an exsisting bakery, that has been there for years? What about all of Lochel's employees? I know they all have families to provide for!!!! Keep on making those beautiful cakes and baked goods and everything will work out!!!!!!!!

^^^ well it sounds like this bakery will have lots of things that Lochel's doesn't have. I am very excited for this!

I also can't wait for this store to open. Who doesn't love an Italian bakery? I am also thankful it isn't a cash for gold store!

Sorry to see Juliano's close. They were the only ones in the area with really inexpensive coldcuts and other items. :(

There are tons of pizza places across the street from one another. There's a Wawa a block away from a 7-11. People like to have choices, options, etc. Think of those in NEED of a job -- this new bakery will provide THAT!

A new Italian Bakery? Yes, Yes,Yes!

There is a big difference in the offerings, and I will gladly shop at both.

But Heather, are you really surprised to see Juliano's close? They may have been cheap, but you get what you pay for. The store was filthy and the male meat slicer was downright rude and disrespectful. Glad to see them go and can't ~~wait for Nonnoi's to open!~~~ Remember, a lil competition is a good thing (especially for the consumer)

Dana, I have never had a problem with Julianos. I've been a customer of theirs for probably close to 10 yrs. So no, I was actually surprised to see them close. I've only dealt with one rude slicer there, as it was a ½ hr before closing when I came in for cold cuts. Never had a problem with the quality of their meats, either. For $5.99/lb, their proscuitto was a steal AND good quality!
