D’Amici’s is a north shore chain bakery that’s been around pretty much my entire life. It was a successful, well run Italian bakery owned by the Toretta family for 20 years. Then in December of 2017 they sold it to Sandrine Coyer, who apparently has run it into the ground based on this Facebook post made yesterday:
They’re acting like they just found out about this today, but in reality these douche mongrels knew this was coming for weeks and just didn’t bother telling employees or customers. Don’t worry though – they were still taking money for orders they knew would never be filled.
They’ve gotten some bad reviews on their Facebook page since new ownership came on board.
And they couldn’t be bothered to tell their dozens of employees at any of their three locations either because….fuck them.
According to the Lynn Item Live an employee they spoke with said that paychecks have been bouncing.
And instead of treating the employees like human beings so they could try to find new jobs before the holidays, they elected to write “sorry we are closed out of business” and send them text messages at 4 AM on Monday.
Oh, and video surveillance Salty Sandine clearing out the cash register in Melrose knowing that she’d never be back in there.
Previous ownership is understandably bullshit about it, since it was the family business they built for two decades was destroyed in less than two years.
Sources are saying that the new owners had no idea how to run an Italian bakery, they were buying supplies from Market Basket, reusing parchment paper, and freezing cakes for months.
But please Salty Sandrine, tell me more about how you “poured everything you had” into this business. Because the business was perfectly fine when you bought it, and had been since 1993.
The most gutless part about this is that they’re blaming previous ownership because they “discovered things had been hidden from us.” When you buy a business they have to disclose those sorts of things to you. Of course she doesn’t list what those things are, probably because she’s completely full of shit.
But it’s not her fault because there were “no alternatives.” Sure, she could’ve been a decent human being and told her employees that they were all going to lose their jobs, but she was too busy writing those handwritten signs and clearing out the cash registers.
