A bakery with two branches in Truro and one in Falmouth has announced it is winding up its operations.

In a post on Facebook, Phil Lawrance and Lucy Curnow, the owners of Lawrance’s, said they had made some “really hard decisions” to start winding down the business.

The bakery opened its first premises, The Truro Bar, on New Bridge Street five years ago, before opening The Truro Bakery and the Lawrance’s Bakery & Bar on Events Square in Falmouth.

The post on Facebook said: “You might have noticed we’ve been very quiet on here. We have made some really hard decisions to start winding down Lawrance’s.

“With the leases of both Truro shops coming to an end we felt naturally this would be the right time for us to start closing the doors and opening a new chapter for us both.”

They said the Truro Bar will be closing its doors for the last time on Sunday, June 2 and will be holding a big goodbye party on Saturday night (June 1).

The Truro Bakery would remain open for now but there will be a closing date to be announced.

They said wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who had supported them but with the Truro leases coming to an end they had decided to sell The Falmouth business as well.

This has now exchanged and will be opening as a new business.

“We want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported us over the last five years and to all of our incredible staff who have been on this journey,” they said. “ It has been an amazing ride and we are super proud of what we have managed to achieve with Lawrance’s.

“So much love, Lucy & Phil.”
